Time to Update Your Resume. What is the Ideal Length?

Time to Update Your Resume. What is the Ideal Length?

Is there an ideal resume length? Can it exceed two pages? The longer the career experience, the more these questions start to burn in the minds of job seekers.

The main determinant of the length of your resume should be your level of seniority and experience. You still need to be succinct though because I assure you that no one will read a 12-page resume. While long and detailed resumes may be the norm elsewhere, in the U.S. the ideal is to keep things as succinct—and relevant—as possible. My recommendation would be not to exceed four pages at the very most, and that’s only for the most senior resumes.

10 Qualities to Look for in a Hiring Partner

According to the NCMM’s Q4 2014 Indicator Survey, more than half of middle market companies are struggling to fill a skills gap. Plus, when rating their top five business challenges, the “ability to attract, train and retain talent” ranks fifth with 77% of middle market firms reporting this as a top challenge.

Given the competiveness and urgency for high-growth, middle-market firms to find, attract and retain high quality talent, middle-market leaders must understand all options when choosing a hiring partner.

Relying on recruitment agencies is an option, but it can become costly when you have many open positions. In addition, few employment agencies offer talent management and consulting services to aid with training and retention. That’s where a comprehensive recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) solution comes in.
