Your fingers and microsoft word.
Yup. Its best to do it yourself since you know everything about yourself, nd how your resume is constructed will tell potential employers a lot about you.

A guy I knew who got out of the navy before me had his professionally written. I copied the format and it's been working well. For some places, format and style doesn't matter because it's just a computer that sees it. But they do eventually matter. You have to tailor your resume for the specific job.....therefore, do not submit your master resume. A good website to learn key words to include for the job posted is tagcrowd.com. since most companies use computers to scan and reduce the amount of applicants, using buzz words helps you get an interview. That's the whole point of a resume.
Agreed. And to add to add to this, there is also a ton of key words you should not use. Those are just an important.

I disagree on the 1 page thing. 1 page is ideal if you have limited experience. And by limited I mean even someone graduating from college with a 4 year degree and some work experience can still easily fit all of their stuff on a resume in one page. I guarantee you that if there is a bunch of applicants for the typical entry level professional job, the hiring manager is not going to read past the first page. If your important information is not front and center, it's headed to the trash. Things to not include on a resume to shorten it to one page would be address and hobbies. You do not need to put your address on a resume. They're going to assume you live somewhere anyway, and aren't living in a cardboard box. Address is not important. Hobbies are also not important either. They may ask you during the interview, but the fact that you like fly fishing and building model cars is not going to get you an interview, your past work experience and/Or education will get you the interview. Trimming the fat from a resume is just as important as creating one. There's no need to include a bunch of unnecessary stuff because it makes it look like you're trying to fill space.
Even high school. Unless you just graduated from high school and that's all you have to list for education, then don't include high school. Even if you are still in college, the hiring manager doesn't give a shit about your GPA or what you took in high school, or even where you went to high school. Especially if you graduated college already, there is no need to include your high school on a resume and it just wastes space. If you graduated from college you obviously graduated from high school, they don't need to know when and where since it doesn't matter.
Obviously if you are applying for a position of high caliber and multi page resume would be in order. But then again you're probably not going to be 1 of 200 applicants for a position like that either, and probably wouldn't be asking for advice on a car forum on how to build a resume.
Keep is to one page, make you education and work experience front and center. List your specialties and things like that. Avoid key words like Perfectionist, and shit like that. You can do a lot of reading online about how to formulate a good resume. Read those, and use one of their example templates, but type it in word, and don't feel you have to follow the template to a T
