The Zero Page Resume

The Zero Page Resume

I'm in a perpetual argument with more than one person over the appropriate length of a resume. I've always believed in the 1-page resume. Most on the other side see 3-pages as a logical limit.

Google tax questions resurface as staff spark suspicion

Google tax questions resurface as staff spark suspicion

Google and its auditor will be quizzed a second time on allegations of tax avoidance in the UK, it's reported, after investigations into whether the search giant misled a government committee turned up some inconsistencies.
