My current goal is to go into intellectual property law/patent pros.
My problem is that I've never had to deal with the resume format before as I've been in the academic world which uses the CV format. On a CV length is good as it's a complete accounting of your accomplishments. It currently fits comfortably onto 2 pages with 0.5in margins.
Currently on my CV I have:
- worked in several labs
- authorship on at least 5 papers: published, submitted, or in preparation- including a publication in Nature
- written a book chapter
- several current or previous professional memberships
- grant awards
- poster presentations
- other various professional activities
Should I go over a page in length because it's relevant to my future goals or just start cutting large chunks of my achievements?
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
