When I graduated college in the mid 90s, the advice from Career Services was to keep your resumes a single page in length. As you gained experience then, of course, your resume could grow. 10 years after grad school, I wonder if its still smart to keep it a page in length. I have more experience certainly, but as I've advanced in my career, the length of someone's resume hasn't been a determining factor in any hiring decisions I've made. I recently revamped my resume, which was just two pages anyway, and condensed it down to a single page, not counting references.
Do you think its wise to limit yourself to a page and elaborate in your cover letter and interview? I know I find myself falling into the "tl;dr" (too long; didn't read) habit and someone with a single-page, lean resume that leaves me wanting more seems more appealing to me than one with a little too much fluff.
