ONE Space Only
After Resume Sentences, Please!

The use of two spaces is an old-fashioned practice that is still rather common today, particularly among those over 40.

Unfortunately for job seekers, certain stylistic choices can make recruiters and executives assume that you’re too old and out of touch to be relevant. Of course, some of those recruiters and executives use two spaces, themselves! But the practice is on its way out.

I recommend everyone use only one space on a resume to conserve space, to appear modern and up-to-date, and because I think it looks cleaner.
