You don't want to be at an early stage in your career with a long, drawn-out, two-page resume. It will turn recruiters and hiring managers off. No company expects someone fresh out of college – or maybe just a few years into their career – to have a two-page resume. On the flip side, you don't want to be far into your career and have only a one-page resume. You are likely not representing all of your skills and work experiences if you are mid or senior level in your career and can only get your resume to a single page.
No matter what stage you are at in your career, you want to create either a one-page resume or a two-page resume. You don't want a three- or four-page resume (no matter how senior you are).
If you opt to create a two-page resume, be sure to include your name on both pages (in a header), along with page numbers (at the bottom of each page). That way if the pages are separated, the reader will know that they go together, and which order they should be in.
There's a lot to get right when it comes to creating (or updating) a resume. LiveCareer's Resume Builder and Resume Templates can help put your document on the right path, in no time at all.
