TMI?

I'm a recent engineering PhD applying for jobs in industry. I have both a 1 page resume and a 4 page CV. Many sites give me the option to upload multiple files to support my application, with a label for each file uploaded.

Are all resume formats created equal?

I've been unemployed since the end of September. Recently, I've had two separate people (one (a recruiter) whose opinion I respect, and one (a woman at unemployment) whose opinion I find suspect) tell me that they would never consider anyone who submits a functional style resume (which is what I use). Do you hire people or work in HR? What do you think? [more inside]

I fudged the end date of my last job by six weeks. What now?
