Ask an Expert: How Long Should Your Resume Be?

This may just be the No. 1 question I am asked regarding resumes. People seem to think that the length of a resume plays a key factor in whether or not the resume gets read.

But the reality is that resumes rarely get read, no matter how short or long they are. At least not in their entirety. The length of your resume is not what's most important. What's most important is the quality of the content.
