This is one of the most asked questions when it comes to resumes. Your resume should really be no more than two pages as this is just too much information and your reader–the person you want to get a job from–is going to lose interest. Keeping it between one and two pages is perfect, but if you go a couple lines over or under this, it’s not a big deal, especially if you are submitting via an online application and page distinctions are not readily apparent.
