How many pages should a perfect CV contain?

Actually, there are no formal limitations as to the number of pages that a CV should fit. Two theories are in competition – one says that it’s always the best option to limit your CV to one page, while the other promotes the idea of standing out by increasing the number of pages to two.
If dozens or hundreds of people respond to a job advertisement, a recruiter does not have the patience to read each and every application. They devote several seconds to each CV. It is only when they find a given resume interesting that you can expect greater attention. However, too much irrelevant information will discourage a recruiter.

CV on 1 page

1. A one-page CV is a nod in the direction of recruiters. It allows for a quick analysis of the content. One page promises a recruiter a time-saving lecture and attracts their attention.
2. It has a function of „an advertising leaflet” – it synthetically informs about a candidate’s professional profile.
3. It’s particularly useful for graduates and candidates with a few years of experience.

CV on 2 or more pages – who is it for?

1. It’s particularly useful for candidates with more than 10 years of professional experience.
2. It allows for a precise, detailed description of competency and experience.
3. When writing longer CVs you need to remember to profile it.

Do not write about experience and competency that are not mentioned in a job offer.
Important! If you have to write more than one page, continue on another sheet of paper (not on the reverse side of the first one!)

How „to summarize” your CV?

It’s best to prepare a full version CV that contains all the information and then cut out data which are less relevant from a recruiter’s perspective. In this way, you will come up with a CV of optimal length ranging from 1 to 2 pages.

@Dragana: The site's form dictates the # of pp's that are rendered. As I learned while creating my cv here, page breaks initiate automatically as content fills the page. This one aspect required my editing text just so to trigger a page break at an appropriate junction. Though I opted for the auto-PDF form to create my cv, there's a downloadable .doc file that can be edited in plain text. The same doesn't apply to c. letter creation; it's rendered only in PDF.

Answer to @Dragana The CV creator does not limit the document to one page. Your document after to generate should be full (one page or two pages or three pages etc.).

I am using CV creator free now and it seems simple. But the thing is, when I download it, I only get one page, the second one is not there. What should I do? I have more than 10 years of experience so many things to write.
