Generally if a person is applying for a job in the trades in Canada or the United States, a one page resume will suffice. However, if you have many years of experience, numerous courses and qualifications, or other crucial pieces of information you wish to share, then by all means go on to the second page. On the other hand, if you do choose to use more than one page, make certain that you fill up almost, if not all, of the entire second page. If your writing only fills up a few lines or even just a quarter of a page, take out unnecessary or repetitive information, or change the formatting of the document to make everything fit neatly onto one page, while still ensuring that the text is legible and well spaced. Regardless of your experience and credentials, most employers in a trade will simply scan the first page of your document to make sure you meet their needs.
The large majority of the computers in offices around the world use MS Word. When you send a file in another format, it probably cant be opened. If it cant be opened, it cant be read. And that means no calls for interviews.
And let's face it. Not every resume writer is necessarily talented to provide you with The Resume that's going to knock the socks off your potentially new employer.
