Really Long Resumes
This is not really a law post, but it is something that I want to vent about. Back in ancient times (the 1990s), my mentors indicated that a resume should be relatively brief. Three pages was plenty, and that’s the rule that I’ve followed.
In the last few years, though, I’ve observed a healthy amount of resume inflation. As a member of our hiring committee, I often see cvs that exceed twenty pages. (I even saw one once that was 40 pages long!). Is this just ridiculous, or am I just out of step with modern marketing?
