Resume

What’s a good size for an experienced consultant (11 + years) resume? Is anything beyond a two pager a bad idea? I have hard time to shrink my resume down from my current 4 pages.

I just helped my dad shrink his from 4 down to 2 pages. He has over 20+ years of experience- it can be done, try consolidating, and only keep to high accomplishments of the oldest projects

Thank you. Did you still have the accomplishments separated by projects or just added all of them under one section?

You don't have to include every project. Only include bullet points that make you attractive for the position you're considering. Nobody on earth needs more than two pages. Just highlight what you've actually done in brief statements and quantify the impact. Did X by Y resulting in Z. Repeat as necessary.

Strategy Folk: What’s the culture of “free work” at your firm? At ACN Strategy....proposals, thought leadership, offering development, etc is all “free” work we have to do on top of project work. Often, leadership throws this “free work” under the guise of a networking opportunity and leaves a bad taste in your mouth / feeling used, while working 14 hour days.
