Don’t think about you, think about them.
When crafting a resume so many veterans make the mistake of putting as many things that they’ve done as they can on it. WRONG!
Have you ever thought about how many other resumes that hiring manager is looking at for the position? The last job I applied for they were over 3000 applicants. How do you set yourself apart from 3000 other people on a black and white sheet of paper? Simple, think about who your resume is for, instead of, how much you can put on it.
One thing that hiring managers need to do is save time, the best way for you to help them save time is make your resume one page.
You might think that's impossible, but it's not when you're considering the other person who's looking at it instead of yourself. If they don't have to click on a "2" or "next page" button, you're saving them time, therefor, they like you, and they put you in the KEEP pile.
Keep it simple:
It won't be easy but you can get your resume to the top of the stack if you're thinking about who instead of how.
