  Can a two-page resume increase your odds of getting hired?

  一份两页的简历能增加你被录用的机率?

  Until you’ve reached the mid-point of your career, or unless you’re in a unique industry like academia or medicine, your resume should always be one-page long, right?

  在你到达职业生涯中期之前,或者除非你从事的是类似学术界或医学界这样的特殊行业,你的简历总应该是一页,是吗?

  Maybe not.

  也许不是。

  Despite the long-held convention, a recent study has found that two-page resumes are actually preferred by recruiters, no matter the candidate’s experience level.

  尽管这惯例由来已久,但最近的一项研究发现,无论求职者的经验水平如何,事实上,招聘者更偏爱两页的简历。

  The study, conducted by resume writing service ResumeGo, found that compared with single-page resumes, two-page resumes increase the amount of time recruiters spend reviewing the applicant, and can ultimately improve the candidate’s likelihood of getting hired.

  此项研究是由提供简历写作服务的ResumeGo进行的。研究发现,与单页简历相比,两页的简历可以增加招聘者对求职者的审核时间,最终提高候选人被录用的可能性。

  ResumeGo asked 482 recruiters, hiring managers and HR professionals to screen nearly 8,000 resumes in a hiring simulation, over 5,000 of which used at least part of a second page.

  在一次招聘模拟中,ResumeGo请482名招聘人员、招聘经理和人力资源专家对近8,000份简历进行筛选,其中有超过5,000份简历的篇幅至少超过了第二页的一部分。

  The study concluded that recruiters were 2.3 times as likely to prefer two-page resumes, scoring their ability to “summarize the candidate’s work experiences and overall credentials” higher by an average of 21%.

  该研究的结论是:招聘者对两页简历的喜爱程度是一页简历的2.3倍,他们对“申请人工作经验及整体资历概括”能力的打分平均提高了21%。

  Furthermore, when it came time to make a final decision, participants spent an average of more than four minutes reviewing two-page resumes, compared with less than two and a half minutes on those that were confined to one.

  此外,在做最终决定的时候,参与者平均多花四分钟来浏览两页的简历,相比之下,单页简历的浏览时间还不到两分半。

  “We were pretty surprised ourselves,” says Peter Yang, the CEO of ResumeGo.

  “我们自己非常惊讶,”ResumeGo首席执行官,彼得•杨说。

  Yang says that after seeing candidates whittle their resumes down to a single page by increasing the margins, reducing the font size and even removing some potentially relevant information, he decided to test the conventional wisdom that forbids page two.

  杨说,一些申请人通过增加边距、缩小字体甚至是删除一些可能相关的信息,来把简历缩减到一页。他看到这种情况后,决定测试一下简历不超两页惯例。

  “I think that belief wasn’t actually grounded in any scientific data or research, and I’m not sure how it came about,” he says.

  “我认为,这种观念其实没有任何科学数据或研究依据,我不清楚它是如何形成的,”他说。

  Yang adds that if a resume doesn’t require two pages, job seekers shouldn’t take his study to suggest they need to add more information just for the sake of reaching the second page.

  杨补充说道,如果简历不到两页,求职者不应该觉得,这项研究是在建议他们增添信息,来把字符码到第二页。

  “It would come across as unnatural,” he says. “It would seem clear to the reader that you’re just adding in fluff.”

  “这会让人觉得不自然,”他说。“读的人很清楚,你只是增加了一些不重要的内容。”

  The study ultimately found that employers were 2.9 times more likely to prefer a two-page resume when hiring for managerial positions, 2.6 times as likely to prefer them for mid-level positions, and 1.4 times as likely to prefer a two-page resume for entry-level job openings.

  该研究最终发现,招聘管理职位时,2.9倍的雇主更偏爱两页的简历,中级职位招聘为2.6倍,初级职位招聘对两页简历的偏爱为1.4倍。
