Does it matter how long your cover letter and resume are?


The length of your cover letter and resume does matter.

Your cover letter should only be one page.  It should best describe your working style and set the tone for your resume.  Describe yourself in terms such as open minded, risk taker, decision maker, detail oriented, etc…

Your resume should include straightforward information.

  • Contact information
  • Objective
  • Employment history
  • Education
  • References (optional)

~Each topic has its own specifications.~


Just remember, don’t overdo it!  If you have written a strong cover letter and resume, you can “sell” yourself in the interview.
