Good luck!
You might also want to check with the site that you are going to post the resume to, they may have specific recommendations that might make your resume look better. Even if you have a preexisting format, I'd check the site resume posting guidelines before uploading anything. Some sites may not format your resume properly if you go outside their submission guidelines. So proceed slowly and carefully.

Here are several online guides. I endorse none.
