1. Should I include personal information on my resume?

Generally not, except your name and contact information. If you'd like to include your personal interests, such as traveling, you can just do it. It is illegal for the potential employers to require your other personal information like marital status, age, etc.

2. Can I create a two-page resume?

It is strongly recommended that you limit your resume in one page. If not, try to use a smaller font, or an indent resume format. If all fail, try to adjust the margin to get more space. For experienced working professional with over ten years of experience, you may extend your resume to no more than two pages.

3. Do I need to include an objective?

Not necessarily. Resume objectives are helpful only if you can not hand in in person. If you have your cover letter included, then a resume objective is not needed.

4. Should my GPA be input in my resume?

If your GPA is some lower than 2.5, it is not wise to include. Otherwise, you can do so.

5. Should I write a Skills section?

You can definitely do so if you have no substantial experience or your past work is not well related to the skills associated with the job you are seeking.

6. Do I need to put Reference List at the end of my resume?

The answer is not. If you want, you may add "References Available Upon Request"
