It is widely known in the professional / HR world that resumes that are much over 1 page long generally go in the trash. I'd love to read your 3 page "pro BSer" resume sometime anyway.
I managed to make a 3 page resume a few months ago but granted, I did put a number of things for education and past employment/volunteer work.
Can help you BS skills and qualifications portion of the resume. Always makes me lol hard writing that sh*t up.
Agreed. In a previous job I was given the responsibility of vetting people that handed in their CV. Unless you seemed respectable and had a CV that didn't make me go tl;dr before figuring out if you were suitable for any roles then you were 'filed' along with the rest of our rubbish. Not like this was a difficult criteria; this was for an unskilled entry level job.
My first CV was 3 pages long. My current one(s) with much more experience is either 1 or 2, depending on the role. The one pager does most. Much more info on it than my old three-pager too. The early CVs went round and round, took ages and many CVs to get anything. My last 2 versions have 100% hit rate (one vacancy applied for, one/two interviews, job attained).
I'm working all summer, bar a long weekend for the Commonwealth Games. Should put away a fair chunk of change for a holiday later in the year (looking at going to watch a biathlon).
