The last 'resume' I put together was 5 pages.
I have an introduction letter, one page resume, transcripts with highlighted attendance record, copy of national honors award, and a letter of recommendation.
I went to office depot and had them all copied onto resume paper and binded together with a clear front and a glue binding. I want to make sure the employer can find my resume in what ever stack he/she throws it in and knows who it is without even opening it.
I like my business cards the same. I want people to know whose card it is just by seeing the shapes and colors on it.
