FAQ #1. How long should I make my cover letter and/or resume?

Your cover letter should be no more than one page in length. It should explain who you are and why you’re the best candidate for the job. It needs to be very concise, yet keep the hiring manager wanting to learn more. If you go any longer than a page, the person reading it will get bored.

Your resume should also be limited to one page, especially if you’ve been in the workforce for a short amount of time. Hiring managers spend only 6 seconds looking through your resume, so it’s important to keep it to one page filled with strong keywords to stand out.

During the job search, every job seeker comes across lots of questions. How long should my resume and cover letter be? How long should I wait before following up? Not all of these questions need an entire article to answer, but they all deserve attention. This is your chance to get the answers to some of the questions you’ve been pondering during your job search. Heather R. Huhman, a Glassdoor career and workplace expert, has answered eight frequently asked questions about the job search.
