Typically, a 1-Page Resume and Cover Letter would be suitable for the following:
A career with few changes of employer and few changes of job title and responsibilities.
So, if you’ve got less than 5 years work experience or you've worked for the same
employer for a long while, this is probably the one for you.
2-Page Resume & Cover Letter
A 2-Page Resume and Cover Letter would best suit a candidate who has worked for more
than 2 employers, has held 2 or more different job titles, and has a fair amount
of information to convey in the area of education, training and self-development,
awards,and industry memberships.
Not Sure Which To Choose?
The resume and cover letter look great.
Thanks so much for all the hard work. Fantastic job. Patrick G, TX

First, take a look at the 1-Page and 2-Page Resume & Cover Letter samples. This should
give you a fair idea of how your own work experience and achievements compare in
length to the resume samples. If you’re still not 100% sure which best suits your
needs, insert your existing resume or a Word document highlighting the companies
you’ve worked for and the positions you’ve held into the box below, and simply click
“send” to e-mail me the information. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours with a
professional recommendation that I believe will place your own unique career and
achievements in the best possible light. (And, no, I won’t automatically recommend
the 2-Pager because it costs more! If I feel I can fit your career on one page without
weakening it, I’ll recommend one page.)
