Whether or Not to Use a Two-page Resume

11 min read · Updated on March 12, 2024

Jen David

If you're wondering whether it's OK to have a two-page resume, the answer is almost always a resounding YES! While a one-page resume used to be the norm, two pagers are now considered best practice in most situations. But of course, one size doesn't fit all and you may need some guidance on how to achieve a two-page resume, so in this article we'll be looking at:

When to use a two-page resume

When not to use a two-page resume, the benefits of a two-page resume.

How to fit a resume onto two pages

Whether a 1.5 page or 2.5 page resume is OK

Whether a two-page resume can be printed double-sided

How far back a resume should go

Whether a two-page resume is a deal breaker

Without further ado, let's investigate the ideal resume length so that you can decide whether a one- or two-page resume is best for your personal situation.

As we've already said, a two-page resume is ideal in most situations. They're particularly popular with professionals who are settled into their careers and looking to continue along the same path. In this situation, the reverse-chronological resume format is common and will generally fit within two pages.

Of course, not everyone is settled into their career and looking to pursue the same trajectory. Freshers, graduates and school leavers often don't have enough work experience to justify a two-page resume and can be better off sticking to one page. Similarly, career changers may not have enough experience relevant to their new aspirations and can consider trimming their resume to one page to eliminate irrelevant details.

At the other end of the spectrum, C-suite executives, freelancers , and contractors may find that they have too many projects, gigs, or interim roles to fit snugly onto two pages and may choose to expand on to three. In that case, though, it's important to make sure that the content is as tight as it can be – don't use this extra page as an excuse to get extra wordy!

Academic , federal and medical resumes fall into a category of their own and have no recommended length limits, due to the publications, peer-reviewed articles, conferences, training and rotations that can be involved.

There is a plethora of benefits to keeping your resume to two pages. Firstly, it's what recruiters expect, so why throw them a curveball? Presenting a resume aligned with current best practices and expectations shows that you're up to date and understand the constraints on your reader's time.

And speaking of time, did you know that, on average, a recruiter only spends 6-7 seconds on their first scan of a resume? That's not an awful lot of time to make a spectacular first impression but, with a well laid out resume with on-point content, you can achieve that in two pages. Even if the recruiter isn't reading every word, you can still make the important information jump out within this timeframe. That's less likely if you've presented a dense 10-page life story.

Aiming for a two-page resume is also a good way of reining in your more verbose side, if you're prone to waffling. Setting a limit on the length of your resume will really help you to focus on including only the most important and impactful information.

Tips and tricks to fit a resume on to two pages

So you've decided to aim for a two-page resume, but that's easier said than done! Especially if you have a long career behind you, it can seem like a Herculean task to summarize your working life on two pages. Luckily, the experts at TopResume have some handy tricks up their sleeve that they're willing to share with you.

Focus on one role at a time

You can start with a master resume, containing all the information you can think of regarding your skills, experience, and education. That master resume can be as long as you like – but you'll never send it out. Instead, select only the most relevant parts to include on any one application . Not only will that significantly reduce the length, it will also ensure that your reader doesn't have to wade through irrelevant detail to find the bits they're interested in.

Bullet point achievements over responsibilities

Rather than exhaustively listing your responsibilities, combine them with achievements to show how you've excelled in the role. No one wants to read a long, dry list of what you did every day, so pick out the most important bits to show how you made a difference. The rest can be discussed in an interview, if required.

Present this information in concise bullet points of 1-2 lines, rather than a paragraph. Paragraphs tend to be more wordy, take up more space, and aren't as easy to pick key points from.

Adjust the margins and font

Now this tip needs to be thoughtfully considered. If you have a line or two dangling onto a third page, you can change the font style, font size and margins to create more space and reduce the document to just two pages. The caveat here is that you should never do this at the expense of readability. Keep your font to a minimum of 10-point, in a sans serif style, with margins of at least 0.5 inches all round. Solid walls of tiny, illegible text are more off-putting than that third page, so use a critical eye with this tip.

Summarize or remove outdated or irrelevant detail

A recruiter doesn't want your entire history, they want to know whether you fit their open vacancy. To that end, allocate more space to recent and relevant roles, qualifications, skills and training, and either summarize or delete anything else. For example, if you still have your degree modules listed on your resume after five years in the workplace, it's an easy win to delete them and free up a few lines of space for something more compelling.

Cut out hobbies and interests

Unless your hobbies and interests are relevant to your target role, there's no need to include them on your resume. If your pastimes are aligned with your career aspirations, by all means include them – but keep them to one line.

Remove references

Have you included reference contact details, or “references available on request?” That can be deleted immediately. Everyone knows that reference checking is part of the recruitment process, but giving this information on your resume won't change a thing – and it won't contribute anything to selling your candidacy.

Share information elsewhere

You may have limited your resume to two pages, but that doesn't mean you can't provide additional information elsewhere. Writing a cover letter gives you the chance to expand on your key selling points and convey a bit of personality, as does adding a link to your LinkedIn profile in your contact details.

Are half pages OK?

While it's not the end of the world to have a 1.5 or 2.5 page resume, it doesn't scream polish and attention to detail. Consider whether you could make a few adjustments to get the resume onto fewer pages or, if not, use that extra half page to add more information to sell your candidacy.

If you really feel the resume is complete and you're only half-way down the last page, use the opportunity to improve the layout. Remember that white space around the text is just as important as the text itself, so consider re-spacing or re-formatting the document. After all, you want your first impression to be that of a consummate professional, not someone who's just thrown some words together in a rush.

Should a two-page resume be printed double-sided?

Most resumes these days will be viewed on a screen initially, but there may be times when you want to print your resume – for example, if you're attending an interview or jobs fair. In these eco-friendly times, it's tempting to print your resume double-sided, to save paper, but we'd advise against it. 

Firstly, it's useful if an interviewer can place both pages side by side to scan and make notes as you chat (for the same reason, we recommend paper clips over staples). Secondly, it doesn't look as good when both sides are printed. Thirdly – and most importantly – it's not common to print resumes double sided, so the recruiter might not even look at the back, meaning they miss out on half your sales pitch.

How far back should a resume go?

In our tips and tricks above, we said that you can reduce the amount of information you include by summarizing or removing outdated information. One of the best ways to do that is to consider how far back your resume goes. As a rule, we'd recommend no more than 10-15 years. You'll be able to go into detail on your recent jobs, achievements and qualifications, whilst taking the focus from roles prior to this.

If you like, you can even eliminate your earliest roles – this technique is particularly useful if you think that age discrimination might be an influencing factor.

If you choose to keep the jobs on the resume in a summarized form, you can either create an Early Career Summary, specifying job title, employer name and dates of employment only, with no detail on responsibilities or achievements, or you can add a Career Note. This is simply a one- to two-line explanation of your career prior to your chosen cut-off point.

Similarly with your education, you only need to include your highest-level qualification. If you attended university, you can ditch the high school section. If you have a long list of training courses and certifications, you can either remove the earliest ones or select only those that will have the biggest impact on your reader. The key here is to be selective about the information you're presenting.

A word of caution

You may find two-page resume templates in Word or Canva that look appealing. Apart from the fact that these templates often have very tricky spacing constraints, as they aren't designed around your specific career, they also aren't designed to be read by an Applicant Tracking System. It's important that your resume can be parsed into, and accurately interpreted, by an ATS, so that it has the best possible chance of ranking highly in keyword searches. Often Word and Canva templates use tables, text boxes and graphics, all of which can introduce errors to your beautifully-crafted resume. Even columns can confuse some of the older systems. We recommend using a single-column format, free of text boxes, tables, graphics, icons and photos for a truly professional and polished resume.

Is a two-page resume a deal breaker?

In short, no, having a resume of exactly two pages is unlikely to be the deciding factor in the success of your application. It will, however, affect the reader's initial perception of you as a professional and we all know that you don't get a second chance to make a first impression.

 Offering up a two-page resume says a lot about your attention to detail, your ability to write concisely, your knowledge of current professional standards, your self-awareness, and your ability to choose the most pertinent information to present. It's definitely worth putting the extra effort into creating a two-page resume that positively reflects you and your professionalism.

The takeaways

In this article, we've discussed why a two-page resume is the norm and how you can achieve that yourself. To summarize:

One-page resumes are great for applicants with minimal professional experience and career changers

Two-page resumes are ideal for most professionals in most situations

Three-page resumes are to be avoided except in a very few cases

You can tweak the content and the format of the resume to achieve your desired length

Half-pages should be avoided if possible

Focus on the last 10 years

And don't forget the golden rule – all the information on your resume should be relevant to the job you're applying for.

What to Put on a Resume

Closeup of resume with pen and glasses on the table

Before you get an interview an employer, you need to perfect your resume. Your resume is the document that will represent who you are as a person and an employee. You need to make sure that it is a good representation of who you are and will help you get an interview. Here are some of the things that you should do and some things that you should not do when writing your resume to ensure that it will be just what your potential employer is looking for when hiring their next employee:

  • Include contact information near the top of the page. Some of the things that you should include are your permanent and school address, email address, and phone number.
  • Choose to include the most relevant experience only. Review the job description to determine which jobs you should include.
  • If you don’t have any jobs that seem relevant to the job, you should show how other jobs that you’ve had have given you the experience that you need for the job. Think about side projects, volunteer work, and coursework that you’ve completed.
  • Since many employers use programs to screen applicants, you need to use certain keywords and phrases in your resume to make sure that you get past this stage in order to have a human review your application. Review the job description to consider various words and phrases that you should use in your resume.
  • Use data, figures, and statistics to quantify the accomplishments that you’ve made in other positions.
  • When explaining your accomplishments and roles in your relevant experience, you need to include powerful verbs.
  • Keep your resume to one page and make sure that it’s readable. The job title and company should stand out.


  • Don’t include any controversial organizations that you’ve been a part of or could cause employers to discriminate against you. Although these shouldn’t determine whether or not you get the job, chances are that they may play a part in the final decision by employers.
  • Don’t add any unrelated or off-putting hobbies that you may have.
  • Don’t oversell your job experience. You shouldn’t make the job seems like more than it was, because the employer will figure it out and won’t be impressed.
  • Don’t include jobs and positions that you held in high school. Try to choose more relevant and more recent experience.
  • Don’t include negative phrases about companies that you’ve worked for or positions that you’ve held. Stick to positive phrases throughout your resume.
  • Don’t add an objective statement unless you’re making a career change.
  • Don’t try to hide gaps in employment. Emphasize what is there, and you can discuss the gaps when you get an interview.
  • Don’t use clichés, overly technical jargon, or the same words from the job description. Find ways to stick out from other applicants.
  • Don’t include the phrase “references upon request.”
  • Don’t use too many fonts. In fact, try to stick to one font throughout.
  • Don’t forget to use spellcheck before sending your resume to an employer.

When writing your resume, you need to make sure that it’s as polished as possible. You should review your resume and really think about what to include. can help you write a resume that will highlight who you are, so you can get the opportunity to interview with companies for which you want to work.

Bedlam softball recap: Oklahoma State captures first series win at OU since 1993

Coach Patty Gasso and the No. 2-ranked OU softball team will seek to bounce back Saturday afternoon from losing the Bedlam series opener against No. 4 Oklahoma State in Norman.

OSU beat OU 6-3 in Friday night's opener.

Here's what you need to know about the Sooners (45-5, 21-4 Big 12) and Cowgirls (43-8, 20-5):

Final: OSU 6, OU 2

Karlie Keeney committed and error before retiring three consecutive hitters to keep the Cowgirls' lead 6-2 heading to the bottom of the seventh.

More: How did Karli Godwin power Oklahoma State softball to Bedlam win? 'This kid is special'

Mid-6: Cowgirls go back-to-back to take lead, then break it open

Claire Timm wasted no time answering OU’s fifth-inning run.

The OSU outfielder blasted her eighth home run of the season out to right on the first pitch of the sixth to tie the game 2-2.

Moments later, Micaela Wark hit her 10th home run of the season to give the Cowgirls their first lead.

After Wark’s home run, Kelly Maxwell came on to pitch for the Sooners, ending Kelly Maxwell’s day.

Later in the inning, Jilyen Poullard belted a three-run home run off Maxwell to make it 6-2 Cowgirls.

End 5: Sooners break through on Lexi Kilfoyl

After giving up the lead in the top of the inning, OU regained the lead in the bottom half.

The Sooners loaded the bases with just one out and Alyssa Brito took three consecutive balls before Lexi Kilfoyl threw back-to-back strikes to get back into the at-bat.

Brito fouled off the sixth pitch before Kilfoyl got Brito swinging on the seventh.

But then Alynah Torres worked a five-pitch walk to score Jayda Coleman to put the Sooners up 2-1.

OU loaded the bases on Rylie Boone’s single, Coleman reach on a fielder’s choice, Ella Parker’s walk and then an error to put Tiare Jennings aboard.

Kilfoyl came on in relief after Cowgirls' starter Ivy Rosenberry allowed one run and three hits in four innings.

Mid-5: Caroline Wang HR ties it

Carolina Wang left no doubt.

The Oklahoma State catcher belted a solo home run to left with two outs in the fifth to tie the game 1-1.

Before Wang’s home run, Nicole May was cruising right along, having retired six consecutive hitters.

Two pitches before Wang’s 17th home run of the season, OU first baseman Cydney Sanders narrowly missed Wang’s foul ball down the right-field line, hitting the wall hard as she tried to reel in what would’ve been the third out.

After a single, May got Rosie Davis to pop out on the infield to send the game into the bottom of the fifth.

Wang is now three home runs away from tying OSU's single-season home run record, held by Samantha Show.

End 4: Sooners take the lead

Jilyen Poullard’s throw beat Alyssa Brito but the OU third baseman slid in under the tag on Kasidi Pickering’s single to center to give the Sooners a 1-0 lead.

With two outs, Pickering laced a 1-1 pitch from Ivy Rosenberry into center and Brito didn’t stop coming from second.

Poullard’s throw was on line, though a little high and Brito dove in to score.

Oklahoma State coach Kenny Gajewski appeared to want to challenge the call but was rebuffed by the umpires, apparently after taking too long to ask for the review.

Brito belted a one-out double before Alynah Torres flied out to set up Pickering’s RBI single.

Mid-4: Nicole May keeps rolling 

OU starter Nicole May’s fourth looked a lot like Ivy Rosenberry’s third inning.

May got a trio of groundouts to keep the game scoreless heading into the bottom of the fourth.

May has three strikeouts and a walk through four innings.

She’s thrown 77 pitches, though, her most since March 23 against Baylor when she threw 89 pitches in five innings.

May has only thrown more than 77 pitches one other time this season — Feb. 23 against Mississippi State.

End 3: Ivy Rosenberry continues to deal

Oklahoma State starting pitcher Ivy Rosenberry worked a 1-2-3 inning in the third to keep the game scoreless.

Rosenberry got Rylie Boone, Jayda Coleman and Ella Parker to ground out in order to retire the side.

She’s retired five in a row.

Rosenberry has allowed just one hit and one walk through three innings.

Mid-3: Cowgirls can't take advantage of Sooners' defensive miscue

Jayda Coleman made a rare defensive miscue in centerfield, but Oklahoma State couldn’t take advantage, and Nicole May kept the game scoreless.

With two outs and runners on first and second, Rosie Davis hit a bouncer into center field.

Oklahoma State coach Kenny Gajewski held Tallen Edwards at third, but tried to send her after Coleman bobbled the ball in center.

But Coleman quickly recovered and Edwards held up.

May then got Claire Timm to ground out to first base to end the threat and send the game into the bottom of the third.

End 2: Ivy Rosenberry strikes out two

Ivy Rosenberry struck out Kinzie Hansen and Cydney Sanders to end the second and keep the game scoreless.

Alynah Torres belted a one-out double to right to give the Sooners a chance to take the lead before Kasidi Pickering drew a walk.

But Rosenberry came out to get Hansen looking on a 2-2 pitch that left Hansen shaking her head and then got Sanders to swing through on a 3-2 pitch to send the game to the third.

Mid-2: Nicole May works around two-out single

Oklahoma State got a two-out hit in the second — a single by Lexi McDonald — but Nicole May got Megan Bloodworth to fly out to short left field to keep the game scoreless.

End 1: Jayda Coleman gets rare strikeout

Jayda Coleman is one of the hardest players in college softball to strike out.

But Coleman took a third strike from Oklahoma State starting pitcher Ivy Rosenberry to lead off the bottom of the first for just her fifth strikeout of the season.

It was just Coleman’s second strikeout since March 9.

Rosenberry worked a 1-2-3 inning, getting Ella Parker to ground out and Tiare Jennings to fly out to the warning track to center.

Middle 1: Bedlam resumes after three-plus hour delay

After a delay of nearly three-and-a-half hours, Bedlam softball resumed with Nicole May in the circle for OU.

May struck out Oklahoma State leadoff hitter Jilyen Poullard shortly after the game resumed, then worked around a two-out single and then a walk to keep the game scoreless heading into the bottom of the first.

Bedlam softball scheduled to resume at 3:15 p.m.

More than an hour after a delay stopped Bedlam softball just four pitches in, an announcement was made that the game would resume at 3:15 p.m.

Moments before the announcement, Oklahoma State players and coaches filed out of Love's Field in preparation for the extended delay.

Bedlam softball goes under lightning delay four pitches in

Game 2 of the Bedlam softball series Saturday went into a weather delay after four pitches. 

Lightning was detected within seven miles of Love’s Field, prompting the delay. 

Fans were forced to evacuate the stadium. 

First pitch was clocked at 12:04 p.m. The game went into a delay at 12:06. 

OU is looking to even the series after OSU won Game 1 Friday.
