Yes, two pages is a good guideline, unless have several years of experience to account for. The most important thing about a resume is structuring it in a way that keeps the reader engaged and reading through the entire document. Formating is key. Do not clutter the resume with too much detail. Use bullet points to provide a high level explanation of you career and accomplishments within you career. Of great importance in my opinion, are you other activities, such as community or campus volunteer and/or leadership activities. These tell the reader of your resume a little bit about your character and the type of person you are. Keep in mind, the purpose of a resume is to pique the reader's interest in you to the point where they want to find out more and bring you in for an interview.
