As your story your resume should effectively present present ALL of your career experience, education, training and most importantly your achievements in an easy to read format.

There are many opinions passed around about how long a resume should be, the information that shouldn’t be put in the resume, how many years back you should go when including jobs and so on.

All of these opinions are usually prefaced by “They say…”.

I haven’t yet discovered who they are.

The basic components of a resume are:

  1. Contact Information
  2. Degrees, Diplomas & Certifications
  3. Languages Spoken
  4. Work Experience
  5. Education
  6. Professional/Technical Training
  7. Awards & Prizes
  8. Community & Volunteer Experience
  9. Travel
  10. Sports
  11. Hobbies

In closing

Your resume is your story and should present your career experience, education, training and most importantly your achievements in an easy to read format.

The length of your resume will be determined by your years of experience, not by an arbitrary one or two page limit.
