What tool do you use to build your resume?

Looking to update my resume and would like to crowdsource opinions :) I need it to be able to export as PDF and do it in a way that it can be auto-scanned by application tools (my previous export was read backward by the application software (for instance my cell number would be )DCBA instead of ABCD). I could do it from scratch in Adobe, but I'm looking for something more efficient and cost-effective. Obviously the designs must be good! StandardResume is not working anymore for me and the dev is not replying to my messages /shrug.

    Minimal, available anywhere, and easy to update. I've used Standard Resume recently as it means I can download a well designed CV whenever I need it.

    This is what I used for all my internship applications and what landed me on my current one. :) Simple to use, beautiful and sleek templates, single page format.

    I've found this to be my favorite. Great tool for creating traditional-looking resumes. Pricing isn't bad and they retain your info even after suspending service until you need it again.

    A better way to build resumes for web and print

    Peter MelloManaging Partner, Lionheart Pathways · Written
    The templates are the best I've seen, the ability to import and parse your data on LinkedIn is smooth and accurate, and the price is right. That's not the unfair advantage, though. The ability to effortlessly link your VisualCV to your own personal domain name or a subdomain, complete with visitor analytics, is what makes me such a huge fan.
