Having a strong resume and cover letter is a crucial component of the job search and application process. This fact sheet provides information from Resume Builder on how to structure and build a resume, in addition to guidance on information to include in a resume and cover letter.
Resume Builder includes templates on its website. The best practice is to limit a resume to one page so recruiters can review it more effectively. For people with more than five years of work experience, it is acceptable to have a resume that is longer than one page.
