Is it bad if your resume is two pages for MBB? Do they mind?

It's not make or break, but, remember, they're going to spend about 15 seconds readin your resume. You want to be very clear in showcasing your best skills, accomplishments etc.

If some great stuff is on your second page, you risk them not even seeing it!

I'd highly recommend aiming for 1 page - you'd be surprised what you can cut once you take an objective look!

Hi! It depends on the market. In Germany, 2 pages is the standard in 99% of the cases.

Cheers, Sidi

Hi,

It's not a strict no-go. But I have a question for you - why do you need 2 pages? There are only 2 cases for having 2 pages:

  • More than 10 years of work experience
  • PHD with a list of relevant scientific works

In other cases, I would assume that you can't communicate concisely - a skill that is super relevant for consulting

Best

Hi!

I would try to keep this in one page unless you have significant work experience over 10 years or so. Note that they typically spend 1 minute per CV, thus the punchier the better.

Best,

Deniz

Hi,

Unless you've had 10-15 years of experience and/or are looking to transition as an AP, I would highly recommend keeping to one page. Thanks!
