The one page resume is pretty much a myth or thing of the past. When people only changed jobs once or twice in a lifetime, it was probably a good rule of thumb. Those days are over, people switch jobs and careers many times throughout their working years now. My resume is roughly 4 pages.

Try to be as detailed as you can about those jobs without getting into trivial tasks like “answered phones”.

Sell yourself; tell them the things you NEED them to know about yourself.

What I have been told is that until you have spent at least 5 years in the work world (usually meaning the post-college work world), your resume should be only one page.
