The question of how long resumes should be has been debated by IT recruiters, IT contractors, and IT staffing firms for a long time. While it’s unlikely there will ever be one answer for every in the information technology field, Google has recently given an interesting answer to the debate. IT consultants and technical recruiters should obviously take many factors into consideration when polishing resumes, but here’s the excellent advice Google has given on resume length.
Resumes don’t necessarily have to be confined to one page, but they shouldn’t be novels, either. The more concise a resume, the better a consultant looks. A resume that is well-edited reflects well on an employee. It doesn’t hurt to leave out details on a resume, as these can be filled in during interviews. So take the time to edit and remove all the details you could fill in later in the hiring process—it may be key to getting you your dream IT jobs.
