We're hiring contract developers at my office. Just leafing though someone's CV before an interview and noticed it was 10 pages long! That's been a record so far but to be honest so many have been 4-6 pages long. What happened to keeping things succinct and relevant!?

    @Hubot-0x58 I get that people may have many past jobs but let's be honest when looking for a C# developer in 2019 I don't need to know about your first job in 1994 writing smalltalk or Fortran... Just the company name, title and time there would do and even then I'd say I don't really care just say full job history available upon request
