Need to brush up resume, has been more than 4 years since I did last. I have 12 years of experience which means n number of client and projects I worked on. What is the latest trend for resume? How long it should be? If it is a 2 pager do you only cover latest experiences or most important one?

The one pager school of thought is that if you can’t fit it on one page you need to bring the detail up a level or more until you can. The more you’re leading to get results, the less weeds you need to describe. Also, only relevant stuff is important, your entire life story is not.

Thank you. I feel the same, when I am going through resume of other people for interviews I am taking, normally I don’t go beyond 2nd page as well.

I always do 1 page resumes. I’ve been in the game for 12 years now and began at my 4th employer recently. Ngl, 4th employer+ can become difficult to fit

More than 1 page resume would drive perception that you don’t know how to summarize/be thoughtful about communication

I’ve been grinding on a project that’s a technical mismatch for me for months.

How should I go about initiating a roll off process? I was looking very forward to working at Deloitte and now dread going to work every day where I’m being asked to fire out deliverables I struggle with.
