Hi all, I am sure everybody is busy with their applications like I am. My resume is coming together, but I have read lots of contradicting advice concerning its length. Some say that it is acceptable for graduate school resumes to be more than one page. Mine is one and a half. I could compact it with smaller font and less "white space" (deleting the spaces between each entry), but that would make it less reader friendly. Is more than one page ok?
Also, I have read that you want to include all of your experience whether or not you find it pertinent to the degree you are applying to. This is supposedly to show the committees how you have used your time. I have a year and a half window from '05 to early '06 in which the only jobs I had were one summer job in construction and a holiday job as a mall sales associate. I can't really say anything about the jobs other than how many hours a day I worked to "pay undergraduate expenses." Should I just leave them out and have an empty year and a half or should I include all of my experience?
