If supplying a copy of a 2-page CV to prospective employers at an employer event, would you suggest the CV should take the form of:

a) One single A4 sheet, printed on both sides
b) Two loose A4 sheets, each printed on one side
c) Two A4 sheets, each printed on one side, and stapled together
d) Two A4 sheets, each printed on one side, and paper-clipped together

Thanks!

It doesn't much matter, it's all down to personal preference. The one thing most of them will prefer is a single page CV.

At an employer event when they will be collecting many hundreds of CVs, brevity is your friend.

I'd chose a single sheet, printed on both sides - the employer will be collecting oceans of paper and will appreciate less wherever possible!
