If you research resume writing tips, you will discover that your resume should be 1-2 pages.  But what if you’ve been working for 20 years or more and in order for you to include all your experience and accomplishments, it takes you 3-4 pages? You might be thinking, “Do I really need to redo my resume?”

Sorry, the answer is yes.  You’re going to have to learn to edit – but don’t stress too much about redoing your resume.  Some of it just won’t be relevant to the job you're applying for so it won't make you look like a stronger candidate anyway.  Unless you’re at the highest levels (CEO, CIO, CFO, etc.), you must keep your resume down to 1-2 pages.

But, redoing your resume can be tricky. What should you consider cutting?  Watch the video to get insider tips on how to cut the fluff in your resume and turn it into the killer marketing brochure it should be.  (And then check out these 3 Simple Things to Strengthen Your Resume and our Extreme Resume Makeover Kit.)
