Unless you learn how to make a resume, it will cost you lots of money for a skill that you really need to know first-hand. With the right reference materials, the essentials of resume writing can be learned in an hour or two. I offer an excellent book on this topic at my website, if I may say so myself. Of course, as you know, you can also visit almost any bookstore to find several other books that will bring you up to speed.
As an example, lets say at your current job you have been called on to handle a wide range of tasks - and you have carried them out exceptionally well. The problem is, you may not want to list all of those responsibilities in a single resume. That might give the impression that you are not focused on any particular expertise and that may put you at a disadvantage. Better to research what skill sets and what role the company you are interested in is looking to fill. Then, tune your resume accordingly. Takes more time? Yes. Gets better results?
Another option is to use a resume template to create your resume. These templates are great because they will provide you with a format for your resume. It will guide you through the process so that you are including the appropriate information and are presenting it in a way that will get you noticed. There are many styles to choose from so you can have the final say on the presentation of your resume. While this is a fairly quick way to come up with the format for your resume, it will require that you can work within the constraints of the resume template.
