You need one of these....

And some of these...

Then try the above links.

I do, however, expect a brand new member has a great CV writing service that you can use, at a cost, that they undoubtedly used and think is wonderful, that neither of you are affiliated to! I expect you already know the answer to your question though, if not, then maybe you need more than help in writing CVs!

A resume should reflect your qualifications. Your ability to write is a qualification, and thus the quality of your resume reflects said qualification. If you're applying for jobs where quality writing is required, then someone else doing your resume for you is a lie. If it won't matter, then don't worry. I've interviewed (and we've subsequently hired) people who have given us resumes in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS and loaded with typos. He was still a good Unix SysAdmin though.

I just exported my LinkedIn page to doc format. Very nicely formatted resume with no effort made. Google the appropriate tools.
Of course, you have to have your LinkedIn page in "humane" condition to be able to do that.

You can export perfectly fine - there is a standard tool that even allows you to choose different styles of your resume - quite a lot of them.
Export to pdf, find a good free online odf to doc converter, convert, done!
All recruiters are ecstatic.

I think he was talking about content.
