    interesting concept...never thought of using it.

    My current one is a template I found online. I have found that you don't really need much of a template for your resume...simple and effective go further than fluff.

    I had an ancient PageMaker template that I loved and was always well received, but unfortunately somehow I lost it. :(

    In for more templates using any programs.

    Pages has some pretty decent templates.

    I hear learning LaTex & formatting your resume using it is the best way to go, but probably requires the most effort.

    Exactly. The last thing you want yours being is a carbon-copy.
