Here's my resume as a sample for anyone who wants to use it. It shows how you can be flexible in the layout and focus on your strengths without following traditional resume designs. I usually get offered the jobs I interview for, although it's important to know they're hiring you, not your resume. The resume is just your way of getting the interview, IME.
Also, I want to congratulate Halla on his new job. I just started a new job for a big company (you've probably used them to book plane tickets online). Tis good to be working!
Something I'll point out on my sample resume is my lack of education. Yes, it's true, I don't have a degree. Now I'm not saying you can make $100k+ a year without a degree because my career is not ordinary but you can at least see how the lack there-of doesn't stick out on my resume and it's still compelling.
