This resume for Elon Musk proves you never, ever need to use more than one page.

Let’s say your accomplishments vary and range from creating an electronic payments industry to invigorating the solar energy market to inventing high-performance electric cars to launching a commercial space and rocket industry.

You may think that all of that would surely need a couple of pages to explain on a resume, right?

Not at all, say the experts at online resume-writing firm Novorésumé , who believe in the less-is-more concept for writing resumes.

They created a sample resume for Musk to prove ” even a highly successful career like his can be presented in a one page resume,” cofounder Andrei Kurtuy tells Business Insider

Musk is famous for his high standards, and he has a reputation as a rough guy to work for. He once described himself as a “nano-manager,” a play-on-words meaning he’s even more controlling than a micro-manager. ( “I have OCD on product-related issues. I only see what’s wrong. I never see what’s right. It’s not a recipe for happiness,” was how he explained his management style).

Still, it proves that with the right design, you never, ever, need more than one page for a resume.
