How Long Should A Resume Be…Or Not Be?

To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The extraneous words of an outrageous 3-page resume,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of rhetorical atrocities,
And by opposing end them: to write, to re-write
No more; and by re-write, to say we end
The heart-ache, and the thousand wasted drafts
That Flesh is heir to? ‘Tis an employer’s
Devout wish. To write, to re-write,
perchance to fix-it; aye, there’s the rub,
For in that thousandth draft, what dream jobs may come,
When we have submitted this mortal resume,
Must give us pause.

I am a highly successful professional and technical writer that has produced artifacts for many different industries. As a technical writer, I have produced a variety of artifacts in many different industries. The user guide I created for a scoreboard company is in gymnasiums all over the world! I've been published by higher education publications for my work and achievements in helping non-traditional students finish their education. I also have a greeting card line that will never make me rich but makes me happy to think that my words touched or tickled someone enough that they paid for them. And my name will be forever immortalized on the back of a greeting card in someone’s dresser drawer, forever! For the last ten years, I worked as a career and education coach in higher education, adult education and correctional facilities. As a professional resume writer that is very knowledgeable about incorporating powerful keywords relevant to your industry. I will review and align your work history, areas of expertise and achievements to highlight your strengths and experience. I have written resumes for a multitude of fields - from A to Z (including military to civilian) - and levels of positions - entry-level to executive resumes and CVs. My personal philosophy is to always Pay It Forward. I never deny someone a professional resume based on the ability to pay. In my spare time, I am usually in my kayak on one of the beautiful lakes we have here with my daughters and dogs. Best Regards, Cynda Alexander
