Before dwelling into the details, it needs to be noted that every almost every professional these days seems to have taken the approach of more pages means better first impression, when it comes to resumes, but as every industry moves towards the amalgamation of talent with creativity, ‘Less is more’ is the approach every employer is looking forward to.
