    There was a time that I wouldn't even consider a candidate who had more than one page, but I have been updating mine and don't know that I can get it all on one page.

    More important is quality-do you have the right keywords in it to pull your resume out of the vast sea of electronic flotsam that HR or whomever is bombarded with.

    Depending on the position and your experience, absolutely. It's not preferred but for some upper echelon positions, yes...it does happen.

    I would remove "Dawg's Saloon Supporter" and that might free up some space. :c

    Depends on the job dude. Anything science or technical can be 2+ pages especially if you have publications or there's few applicants.

    An upper echelon position is not in Ridic's future so I had to laugh out loud at your comment.
