People say that these days you have to get people’s attention right away, or you lose them. For example, keep your resume on one page. But I submit that, if you give them something of value, they’ll continue to read it until the value runs out.
Key point? Talk until you run out of value. Then stop.
Here’s an example of how I attempted to provide value in a resume. I took one page of info and made it 9 pages that are vastly more interesting than just one. See if you agree.
Point is, think about content first. Worry about length later.
