No, a cover letter can’t be two pages. A two page cover letter is too long, and is likely to lose the hiring manager’s attention.
If your cover letter runs onto a second page, it’s a sign that it isn’t focused enough and that you’re starting to ramble.
The ideal length for a cover letter is:
- Between ½ and one page
- 250–400 words
- 3 to 4 paragraphs long
