Hi, what are the best Resume Free and not Free services. I don't mind paying for the ones they charge but better. Thanks.

No service will write a resume that will "guarantee" you getting a job. Unless you are 100% illiterate (and you aren't), I would seriously suggest you Google "sample XXX resume" where the XXX is the job title you want. You will see hundreds of examples. Find the sections and formats that impress you and best fits your situation. See the language being used to explain accomplishments.

Thanks. So you are saying it's not worth to pay $$ for resume services?

katlin, what jobs/career are you pursuing?
By far most jobs only need a simply formatted resume, nothing fancy or technical. As charlygal mentioned you can find sample resumes very easily.

Also, AskAManager.org has some excellent input and suggestions for resumes in their archives.

My personal opinion is no. It's not worth it. Years ago, a former employer hired a resume service to held employees that were being laid off. The resume they produced looked like something that a high school kid could have done.

The truth is that there is no "magic bullet" when it comes to resumes. What you want to focus on is having the right experience and education for the job. Having a pretty resume won't help to hide a lack of qualifications.

thank you for your replies. My resume always worked I am just planning on updating my resume since I will be moving back East and putting more experience on it. But after all the research I did I guess you guys are right. It's not worth paying 300 lol.
