Not all advice is good advice. Here are some outdated resume tips you should be avoiding at all costs!
1. “YOUR RESUME SHOULD ONLY BE ONE PAGE LONG.”
Two pages is currently the ideal length for resumes. It allows you enough space to be thorough without the information getting buried among itself. Certain positions in the medical and academic fields require a CV (curriculum vitae), which is typically longer because it includes research, publications, or other items that the position asks for. Two pages is a good length for resumes, though.
