Because resumes are read online, do I really need to start the second page with my name and “page 2 of 2” at the top?
It is true that initially almost all resumes are viewed online. However, quite often, at some point a resume is printed. It is the standard to include a “page two” heading to include your name and a page header, “Page 2 of 2” for example. Having a page 2 heading not only gives a neat appearance to the page when printed; it keeps your resume pages orderly for times when it is printed and used as a guide for an interview.
