resume weirdness, #271 by Alison Green on July 1, 2014 Y’all, if your work experience doesn’t start until the second page of your resume*, this is a problem. Employers care what you’ve done. That’s your work experience. All that other stuff taking up tons of real estate is (a) way less important and (b) really, really, really not something that should be pushing your work experience off the first page. (Not to mention which, if your work experience doesn’t start until your second page, I can almost guarantee that your resume is more than two pages, which is way too long.) Cut. * Or even if it doesn’t start until the bottom of your first page. If your work experience starts any later than the middle of your first page, you’re guilty and I sentence you to an evening spent cutting as well.
