I am applying for a position that requires a 1-2 page resume. My current CV is 3 pages (6 with publications/conference attendance/presentations). How do I choose what goes on there and what doesn’t? I know it should be relevant to the job I’m applying to, but won’t it look weird if there are huge missing gaps?
Any help would be appreciated!

I wouldn’t eliminate anything that would create time gaps, I would keep your job accomplishments from further back in time concise and use more space for recent positions.

I’d leave out the conferences and presentations (except maybe just really great ones: “selected presentations” or something), and just do publications that are relevant to the job you’re applying for. Agree with PP – condense the job descriptions as much as you can, but I wouldn’t leave huge gaps. Also, much of my CV text is in 8 point font. Yeah it’s small, but it’s definitely legible – and, when they ask for such a short doc, what do they expect?

Thanks! I will see if I can condense it some but it is hard. Good idea about putting “selected xyz” – do you think I will need to list them or should I just list journals/conferences and say something general like “published in ….” and “presented at …” or does that make me look lazy?
