I'm sorry, but it seems like you're trying to disagree with an argument that I've never made.
You're saying that because you needed more than one page, many others will as well. Um, of course. There will be many others that may need more than one page. "Many others" is almost certainly the extreme minority. For the vast majority of applicants, one page will suffice. I stand by everything I've said :
1.5 pages as a personal preference I do not like.
It is likely if you're using more than one page, you're including aspects that aren't terribly important
And you are saying because you didn't need one, many others will not. It's the same argument only reversed.
What? No I didn't. I actually didn't offer justification on why I thought most people would be able to utilize a 1-page resume better. If you want to discuss the merits of one-page resumes and what my experience of reviewing resumes, I'd be happy to talk about that with you. I used myself as an example of somebody who was able to cram a lot of experience into a 1-page format.
I'm not inclined to rehash this argument that has been waged countless times on TLS. The OP was asking for what he should do. Most of the time, he should use a 1-page resume. There will be times when 2 pages are more appropriate.
