Hi Everyone, my 2nd job search related question tonight.

The last time I had to search for a  job was 10 years ago. Back then I remember buying this software called "Resume Maker" to edit and create a resume.
However I have no idea what all is out there now. I saw a couple of sites that look like online resume creation tools. I know 10 years ago there were actual services where people would make your resume for you. I am not sure if that is still even an option but I'd probably still like to create mine myself.
What are the current preferred ways of creating a resume, both as something I can send to companies and print out hard copies of to take on interviews?

Not that a good resume isn't important, but an HR specialist friend of mine says that a really good LinkedIn profile is even more important these days. I'd suggest creating a LinkedIn profile if you do not already have one, and make sure that's it's just as good, if not better, than your resume.
 
Uh oh, we're definitely being carded. Here, show him this tiny ad:
