CV on one page

It seems that there is a trend to get CVs down to one page.

I really want to know who are the people that decide that they wouldn't read a well set out, clear CV that is written on two pages.

I personally prefer two pages. The CVs that I have seen on one page are either lacking in detail or are jam-packed onto one page, making the CV very difficult to read.

Perhaps there is a case for a one page CV for your first job as some employers don't really care about what you've done outside of school or university. Then again many do and I don't think its worth the risk leaving that stuff out!

If you're an employer who'd reject someone with a two page CV then you probably should look twice at your recruitment policy.
