Well, the title says it all. Basically, there is a big debate on how long a CV should be. Some say everything should stand in a single page. Others say 2 is best.. . not even mentionning employer's preferences may change from 1 country to another...
So I would like to have your opinions.
I should also specify that we are talking about a CV for young graduates seeking for first jobs/internships (not a researcher's/academia CV) in IB's
(I doubt you can fit it onto 1 page.)
edit: obviously it's possible to omitt more than I would have thought.
Perfectly possible to pack a CV into one page if you're concise, don't list every single grade etc. For a UK grad I'd recommend putting profile (a couple of lines about you), education (just single lines for A-Levels and GCSEs) and relevant work experience on the first page (languages, IT skills etc if relevant), and other experience, interests, referees etc on the second.
The CV is an advertisement for yourself. It has about 4 seconds to make a good first impression. That means not enough time for anyone to bother to read a second page. Every HR person I've spoken to (which admittedly isn't *every* HR person working in the city) has said keep it to one page.
u gotta impress them in the application form aswel.
dont go into detail on your cv to much since the app normally asks many question for that.
One page please. The vast majority of City CVs are one page when they could easily be so English* and span several.
*Anglo CVs tend to babble on and on. American ones take bullet point very seriously. European ones are clinical (and some of the least exciting reads ever).
