I often get asked "how long should a CV be?" I personally design CVs for my clients with 3 pages in mind but it all depends on the length and breadth of their experience. A very technical CV with an above average list of training certifications and additional sections like publications and memberships often lands on 4 pages. But 4 pages is my absolute limit. Beyond this recruiters and hiring managers tend to switch off and most readers are interested in the last 10 years of your career.
