Resume's Should be One Page Only

Not Always an Option. Two pages is Ok

I’ve heard it both ways but the reality is that sometimes there is entirely too much information to fit it in a one page resume. What do you think, is two pages or more for a resume a deal breaker or a direct path to the paper shredder?

If you have lots of experience or education, it may take more than one page.

After my time in the military and all the different jobs ive had here alone i think i can fill one page per enlistment. All my awesome wont fit on just one page.

I'm taking a middle ground on this one because I think it's acceptable to have two pages of information as long as you don't force the prospective employer to navigate to a second piece of paper. Meaning, if you print on the back side of one page with a prompt to turn to the other side. Am I wrong? Let me know.

I agree with you. I think it is ok to have two pages as well. One pages is probably preferable because it takes less time to look at and sometimes looks neater. I guess it also depends on how you put the two pages together....stapled, etc.
