"If you have a PhD and your resume is less than 3 pages, you look like an idiot"

- my psychology professor

Guess I am an idiot then. I can tell you that not many PhDs would be decorated enough to have anything more than 2 pages at best unless you literally write "I have excellent abilities in mark-up languages and can produce elegantly designed manuscripts and presentations" instead of "Proficiency in Markdown/LaTeX". This is including a presentations and publications section and other responibilities such as invited reviews and membership to societies.

But if you seriously cannot consolidate your skills and expertise into a 1-2 pages even after a PhD you are seriously doing something wrong in my honest opinion. Anything more than that would be for things such as publications and presentations which you should only really select a few of them. If you are a decorated PhD holder, with 8-10 years of Post-Doctoral Research under your belt, then a long CV IS needed since you also have to detail down sponsors and who has funded your research alongside titles of such things.

Honestly I have no clue where the 1 page resume rule came from. When we receive your application, there's probably 10 pages stapled to it anyway. By all means, filter out the fluff, but don't be afraid to submit a 2 or 3 page resume. In fact you probably should be able to fill a couple pages if you're looking for a mid level position

The one-page rule probably came from HR-managers that couldn't be bothered doing their jobs.

 

I guess in the age-of-convenience and to make baby boomer's jobs easier they would have preferred shorter CVs so they had had to do less work.

There's no way I have enough for more than 2 pages even if I did everything I wanted between now and graduation. I was thinking I'd hit like 1.5 pages, maybe 1.75, if I don't cut anything.
 
Essentially ideally it would be:
contact info / portfolio / etc (5 lines)
languages, APIs, frameworks, tools with more than 1 year experience (4 lines)
work experience (10-12 lines)
- ItsyRealm
- internship at Epic or whatever
- work at IM
- freelance work
education (2-4 lines)
- BS in CS
- AS in computer programming
extracurriculars (4-6 lines)
- game dev club
- tutoring
- contract work / etc
completed projects of note (optional, 2-4 lines)
- BMASHINA
- DISCWORLD
- ARDEN
- open source contribs

Looks like a solid beginning for a CV. How would freelance work differ from contractual work - aren't they the same thing?

With a major rival fan site closing (http://forums.zybez....8#entry17221283) it makes me think how long Tip.it will be around. End of an era it seems.

In my personal life, I’m preparing moving to another city for the first time in my life. Even though I’ve lived on my own/with an s/o for the past 5 years, moving away from family and everyone I know stresses me out.

Messing around with and organizing a funeral and all the paperworks and inheritance and stuff is a pain in the butt. Specially if you are abroad.
Oh well, I'll be on a boat tomorrow and back at homeland on Thursday for a Saturday funeral.
Turns out that once the paperwork is complete I own a house and a car...

You know, my best friend tried really hard to get me and him to sign up to be DJs for zybez radio back in the day. I think we were still in middle school at the time, god.

I don't know if I'd still enjoy internet radio these days, but I had a lot of fun with that back in the day.

not too surprising....always saw Zybez as a bigger and more successful site than tip.it, at least as far as forums and clans are concerned. I've long since resigned myself to TIF going down one day and never coming back up.
