    There are a lot of good sites, but I would make sure you tailor it to your particular industry. Many fields have their own styles and formats they prefer - a graphic designer will be a very different looking resume from a lawyer from an engineer. Good luck with the job hunt.

    Just keep in mind there is no resume law - if it gets the information across better, it's right, no matter what your example says. I don't like that they often advise you to shrink it to 1 page and leave out important details. If it's not on the resume, it doesn't count and when I look at them, 1 page ones aren't even read unless something catches my eye. Those are appropriate for 22-year-old college graduates. I think page 1 of my resume just covers education and my current job.

    Don't worry about it. Make it clean and to the point. Here is a great video to get some tips from:

    1 page is enough if done right.

    Whatever you do, have someone read it first. Someone who likes to read.

    Easiest thing to do is catch misspellings and typos. But you, the author, will probably fail at that, even with a computer :) Thus you need someone to read what you wrote, instead of what you think you wrote.
