How long, or how do I arrange my resume/ curriculum vitae

How long should my resume/ curriculum vitae be?

There is no defined length for a resume/ curriculum vitae. A resume/ curriculum vitae varies according to your experience and professional qualifications. If you do not have a lot of professional experience, one or two pages are perfect, but if you have a lot of study and work experience, three pages are quite correct. Make sure you don’t pad up your resume/ curriculum vitae, because, if you do, you may end up losing an important job you are qualified for. If your resume/ curriculum vitae is only one or two pages, with precise details, then you are good to go.
