Someone working in an IT-field has advised a close friend of mine that in the IT field, the longer the resume is, the better it is. My friend has business and management experience, but no IT experience.
I'm not in IT and haven't seen many IT resumes. But this advice seems very misguided and runs counter to everything I've ever heard/read about writing a good resume.
I think it also runs counter to what my friend thinks . . . but he trusts this guy on all things related to IT careers. Primarily because he knows that he doesn't know any better.
-- I'm assuming that the "long resume is a good resume in IT" is bad advice. Correct? (thoughts from IT managers or recruiters?)
-- Other than pointing my friend to the resume cast, is there any other advice I should offer him?
