Default Actuarial Career Fair in Pittsburgh

I signed up for an actuarial career fair at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh on October 4. Should I take one-page resumes, two-page resumes, or both? Thanks in advance.

One page. Two pages is too long for EL (and for most others), and it's simpler for you to work with one type of resume at the fair.

Cut down to one, but give hints in that one page that make them want to know more. I mean, if you tell them everything on your resume, there will be nothing left to talk about except boilerplate behavioral questions.
