One page for ten years. Don’t worry. You aren’t that special

No, think about how much time recruiters spend on resumes. Anything more then 1 page is going to be ignored.

Elon Musk’s is one page and available online to use as an example.

Mine is one page (21 YOE) and I’ve gotten the opportunities I was chasing.

Hi Friends, I’m currently interviewing for a role with the Alexa team at Amazon. The last I heard was I was moved to the final loop interview. It’s been 3 weeks since I heard from my recruiter since then. They let me know there’s a re org/shift happening internally and recruitment has been paused. Can anyone please share any insights if they have them? Not sure how much longer to wait before looking elsewhere. Thanks so much.

Leaving my glorious M role for an L7 nontechnical position at Amazon. For those looking to exit consulting, here are things that worked for me:
1. Be patient. I looked for over a year before finding this and dealt with tons of ghosting, rejections and discussions that were a waste of time.
2. Don't filter out locations. If the role looks like a good fit, apply. In my case this was a really niche job that is tough to match so we worked out a compromise where I won't need to relocate.
