Changing rules of resume writingAbridged: DailyBreeze.com

For years now, recruiters have been preaching to job seekers that they should keep their resumes to one page. But a new survey conducted for Accountemps has discovered that just more than half of executives still believe this practice is necessary.

The national poll found that a full 44 percent of recruiters actually prefer two pages. This is significantly more than the 25 percent who said they preferred two pages a decade earlier. And when it comes to resumes for executive roles, 31 percent cite three pages as ideal.

"Many employers are willing to spend a little more time reviewing application materials so they can more easily determine who is most qualified and act quickly to secure interviews with these candidates," says Max Messmer, chairman of Accountemps and author of Managing Your Career For Dummies.
