This is the most argued point of resume writing. Some professionals vigorously discourage applicants from going over one page, while others argue that in some instances it is acceptable. The bottom line is this: if you have information that is highly relevant to the position you are applying for then go ahead and add an extra page. However, if you are just adding fluff for the sake of adding pages, then your resume will suffer.
Including an additional skills section may be worth considering. An additional skills section is a short and concise list of skills relevant to your industry. This section is similar a technical skills, but is often used for industries that do not specifically require advanced skills. Check out the yellow-highlighted additional skills section in the image to your right.
Review resume formats, and choose the best type of resume for your experience and the job to which you’re applying. For example, if your work experience is a good fit for the role, a chronological resume might be the best choice. On the other hand, if you’ve done a good deal of job hopping, or are looking for work while unemployed, a functional resume might be a better option, as it focuses on skills over linear employment history.
