    I'm having to redo my resume since i only have a hard copy of it, and it must be updated anyways. What are some good choices of resume builders? I'm applying for an interpreter job with the school board.

    I did my resume in Windows with the Microsoft Word (.doc) format a long time ago when I was using WinXP.

    Since I now use Linux, I just import the .doc file into the latest Linux word porcessor.

    If you have a job description, use it as a guide to format and cover all of the requirements regarding your previous job experience in the interpreter field or fluency in language(s) interpretation.

    Don't the U.S have a resume template from which people can create their resume?

    Some programs have many templates or formats to choose from when creating your resume. I did mine using Word years ago, but I only have a hard copy now. I thought someone here may have experience with using software specifically for creating resumes that they liked, and would recommend. I know of several, but have never used any of them. I may just try a few of them, and see which one i like. I just don't want to pay money for something, and then find out I don't like it. So as long as its free or they have a trial then it want be an issue.

    Will this be for a hardcopy, softcopy, or both? For softcopy I would us Word since is a common format and would have less compatabilty issues. I used open office once for a resume (had tables in it) and the format looked off in Word 2003.

    Cutting_Edgetech, perhaps this 5 web-based applications article might point you in the right direction:

    -http://www.thewritingsoftware.com/resume-writing-software/free-resume-writing-software/

    For a simple Word-like program, there is always AbiWord or AbiWord Portable.
