There are many other great resources out there. Here's a couple things to keep in mind when shopping around for other online resume services: 

"Kinda" Free Services

There are some services that let you create a free resume, but if you want to download it, there's a fee. Unfortunately, they don't always tell you that upfront. The fees vary because they may charge you for each download or they may charge you a trial rate that allows you to download as many as you want for a temporary (trial) period. If you want to pay for each download, fees are usually $1 per download. Trial periods are usually 14-30 days; and trial rates are generally $2 - $5.

After the trial period, if you decide to keep the service, a monthly membership fee is charged. Those fees also vary with each company, but they commonly range from $15 - $30 per month.  In addition to their resume services, most of these 
companies also provide cover letter templates, job search services and other tools.
