Recommendations and resources for resume writing

Anyone have recommendations for professional resume writers or some really good resources/templates? I'm assuming everything can be done online so location doesn't matter.

Thanks to you both and yes please - that would be appreciated.

I just finished watching this excellent LinkedIn course on resumes, learned so many good tips like using a functional resume instead of chronological in my case- https://www.linkedin.com/learning/writi ... ls-section

You might want to ask for samples from people in your field. At the same time ask these same people for job search tips or how they got their current job

What is OP field? That will dictate how the resume will be. I find that Government services do not work unless you are going into a low skill field.

I would strongly suggest to reach out to @raywired if you are looking for any valuable feedback for your resume. He was very kind to offer his help for no charge. His feedback helped me to reshape my resume and I am ascertain to get more attention in future.
Can't thank him enough. RFD is much more valuable due to members like him.
