I agree with the part about putting the stuff you want them to see on the front. The second page is for less relevant previous jobs, education, volunteerism, and "other" experience. I will say, though, that I know people are reading that page because I always get asked about my secondment, and that's in the bottom half of the second page.

I agree that it's fine to have a resume longer than one page, as long as you have enough actuarial experience to back it up. EL's should stick to the one page rule.
