Try Supplemental Sheets and Addenda Instead of Longer Resume
Supplemental sheets and addenda provide a way to present additional information without adding to the length of the resume itself.
A suite of addenda, says Deborah Wile Dib, president of Advantage Resumes of New York, can be a strategic way to mention presentations, awards, published works, technical skills, extensive education, and expanded success studies. Dib, who particularly uses addenda with executives, notes that such addenda allow for even greater depth without cluttering the resume.
Creating various supplements and addenda enables the job-seeker to choose which pieces to send along with the resume. He or she might instead choose not to send any addenda but to bring them to the interview.
