Chances are, the person reading your resume is a very busy individual. He or she may have many other resumes to go through. So it's best to keep yours brief, concise, and to the point. Generally, a resume should be no longer than two pages; one page if you can do so without sacrificing important information. Of course, the longer you've been in the workforce, the longer your resume will tend to be. Typically, your personal data will take up only a couple of lines. Your education and honors, unless exceptional, should fit easily on five lines. If your resume does run onto two pages, it's usually best to put your education on the second page. The work experience section will likely be the largest portion of your resume. In most cases, it should take up about two thirds of the space. If you're very young, or have little related experience, this section may be shorter. Remember, when it comes to your resume, less can be more. By including only the information that's of interest to a potential employer, you'll automatically have a shorter and stronger resume.
