I haven't had a lot of luck landing interviews. Maybe my resume isn't all it could be. Is two pages still a good length or should I get it down to one page?

As someone who reads resumes in this field and interviews 1 page summary is king. It's a soft skill you will need in this line of work

Your resume doesn't have to be two pages if you can organize it into one page while still making it navigable. It's most important that you have your experience detailed and the centerpiece of your page(s). You can always try side columns as well.

Just fyi, side columns aren’t parsed easily by ATS

Tbh I've also had terrible luck recently the market is absolutely flooded with people looking for a job

of course get it down to one pagr

It’s the market, I have literally copied and rephrased job description and skills in my resume, to match the role 100% but still no luck

I agree. I have 5+ years experience, an MBA and unemployed since September

It’s not about length, it’s about articulating what your measurable impact is to the job description. If a recruiter can’t separate your experience from someone else’s, why is the length going to matter?

It depends an how much experience you have. If it's less than 10 years then 2 pages is too long and you should trim it down. Try changing your resume a bit for each position by including some key words that you see in the application

I agree. I have a 25+ year job history, and it shows increasing roles and responsibilities. If an HR algorithm cancels me, I probably wouldn't be interested.
I would highly recommend getting in touch with a recruiter, they can use their network to open doors.

Who does a good resume review for next to nothing.

I don't know how to PM from Glassdoor.

None of this showed up in my research of the company or my interviews.
