K I'm looking for the Spivey post. I have had 4 big girl jobs and I want to talk about volunteer stuff too because apparently they care about that (a friend had lack of community service noted in a rejection letter).

seeing a resume in size 8 font would b 180. i do f w the margins in mine tho so theres basically no top or bottom margin n the side margins r like .2"


One or more margins are set outside the printable area of the page, BillPackets.

Would be so funny if our computers started addressing us by our TLS handles

nah boo.
Plz note that I didn't restrict 1pg resumes to KJD, but if u are KJD u prolly dnt wnt 2 go ovr that.
You could do 1 pg if u were old and had had few jerbs.
Or if u were old and played musical jerbs then 2 pgs is gud see Spivbros blog post

There is no need for 2 PGs IMHO and I have work experience 2 years since college and still college internship on it, nobody is that special 1-3 years out

Team vote please. Should I spend my lunch hour doing Difficult LG, Difficult RC, or Flaw LR? just go home so I can study for the LSAT for the rest of the day. Advise.

Or, possibly, go shopping. Did you buy those shoes yet?
