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.

8. Most recent job last: However, you are listing or writing about your work experience, you need to ensure that you talk about your most recent first. It is after all what employers will be most interested in.
