Sound resume advice from Mashable

Generally good advice here, but I take exception with the 2 page limit. Maybe it’s on target for the hi-tech world, but for the companies/people I work with, here’s my advice: Make your resume as long as is necessary to tell your story in a way that is compelling and relevant to the reader…..but not one word longer!  If it takes more space to convey a clear narrative and keep your design clean and easy to read, so be it. Trying to meet a 2 page limit often causes people to reduce margins and use a small, hard to read font–things that diminish the readability of your resume and take away from its impact.!
