You won't have to pay anyone to do your resume, if you take a little time to research these 3 websites....
When you are emailing your resume remember to "flush" all the sentences to the left of the page, one sentence at a time.....or when it gets to the employer it will look horrible. Kinna like "one line at a time". You don't have to do that on the resume that you will "give out", just on the ones to be send on the web.
Make sure to email yourself your resume so you can see it before it goes anywhere.
Also, when emailing resumes to different employers, make sure to have a copy of it (print-it) to "keep track" of every job-application that you are sending. (oh my, once, I got so overwhelmed with my multiple applications that since then, I decided to have a copy of everything.)
Finally, don't forget to check on cover letters at these sites..they are very important to sent one with every resume. The bad thing about cover letters is that you have to "personalize" each of them, depending on the employer.
Here is an example of what I was talking about "flushing" your sentences to the left:
