Talk to me about your resume. How many pages is it? Do you provide and overview page and then go into more role detail? I’ve received conflicting advice.

1 Page. Overview at the top. Jobs after. College. Awards. Anything longer than 1 page probably won’t be read. Keep it simple and clean and easy to read. There are a lot of resumes out there.

^ I leave out the graduation year. But I’m a freelancer and experience is valued. I guess someone paying attention could figure out that I’m 50+.

1 page. The different accounts I’ve worked on, different agencies, short blurbs about what I accomplished at each, list of awards, college (but not graduation year) and that’s it

I have a tough time with a one page resume since I haven’t always done producing commercials specifically. I try to keep it to two and to make the resume that most suits the job. Maybe I’m wrong but one seems really short for someone not just out of college.

Until I was 40, I did my best to keep it to a one-page (sexy, well designed) PDF. But moving to the brand side back in 2013 made it different. The job titles are different. What you actually do/did is different than just listing Sr. Copywriter, Agency X, 2008-2012. It’s a whole different animal. My resume is 3 pages now with lots of detail that is apparently pretty valuable.

2 pages is ok. But keep it to bullet points for relevant experience to thr job

Anyone working in Insurance Tax (Premium/State/Excise/SUT/etc.)? I’m feeling undervalued and burned out. I have been in my role for 5 years and I’m making 80k. I’m a top performer and on top of my defined role I also train new hires, manage the interns, and serve on several committees. Is this what I should be making as a Specialist? I generally enjoy what I do and the people I work with. Do I need to jump ship?

Which company would you join?

I currently work in Sales with the intention of moving over to marketing in the near future. I received two offers for BDR/SDR roles from
Sprout Social and Gong. Both salaries are around the same (Gong - base 63k + anticipated $25k in commission, Sprout - 55k base + anticipated $25k in commission).

I like both companies’ software and it extremely hard to decide which position will get me into marketing faster as it is not a traditional BDR path to take.

Help!
