Are you asking if your resume can be less than 1 page?

You do not possibly have more experience than can be fit on a one-page resume. My resume from four years at McK easily fits on one page. If you're having issues, take a look at how you're synthesizing your experience and be more concise and results-oriented.

Should not be more than 1 page. If you have 2 YOE - this should not be a worry or else change your format.

I have 7 YOE and I still can’t even fill out an entire page 😂

Borrowing from another poster who said this before - Tom Brady and Obama have one page resumes, you have a one page resume.
