Yeah got my grad job off of one page. Seen a couple jobs this week that I want to try and interview for at least and see if I can pull it off/learn what skills I am missing to make the next step up etc

 

Cool, will work off of two pages

Doesn't matter bro. What matters is your summary at the start of the CV. If they find you intriguing they'll be willing to read the rest of it and from my experience the more information they have available at that time the better they're able to qualify you and get you in for an interview.

You always want to have a summary of your key skills and experiences at the start, this is what I learnt from recruiters who work with people who trawl through hundreds of these things.

My CV is like 3-4 pages because I went indepth on my last 3 roles including responsibilities and key achievements. Bullet points are cool, just make yourself look as interesting and dynamic as possible.

Mine was 3 pages back when I needed them

There was no way I could have had any less

2pages but nowadays depending on your industry recruiters just keyword search what they are looking for and THEN print it out.

Again , depending on your industry 2 + pages is overkill.

Trust you do, looks very amateur

once you do a little hiring yourself you start to look at the whole process very different

but I'm conscious that even with clever wording I'm gonna need to go over two pages eventually to adequately cover my experience

job hopping is never a good sign

not that i've ever done it, but if i landed a job tomorrow and was out of there in under three months, it ain't going on my CV

some people will literally put anything on their CV

had one guy put 'Question Time Audience Member' on his CV

FOH with that shit

youll only need a 3 page+ CV if youre in the science/tech field or have over 10 years of RELEVANT work experience. 

keep it to 2 if in doubt.

No point putting it on your cv, just get out asap

Family emergency for the month out or something

everything important should be on the first page, second is extended ("read more" material, if you will)
