    MS Word :)

    Use tables and hide the borders to format it nicely.

    MS Word isn't exactly freeware.

    To the OP, I'd suggest playing with Textedit, you can actually make some pretty richly formatted documents in it.

    You don't really need any kind of crazy, complicated layout for a resume. Something simple and elegant is much preferred, in fact. And something like that can be created in TextEdit. Plus, with OS X, you can "print" everything to PDF which ensures that it will look the same on everything that opens it.

    That's what I've done with my resume and it works great.

    Oh, right. I hate when details matter...

    Another option is to use LaTeX, but that's probably only viable if you've used it before. There are quite a few LaTeX resume templates that are easy to use if you have have typesetter already installed on your computer (see TeXShop for a good OS X front-end).

    I did a google search for latex resume templates and found this set from RPI that I didn't hate: http://www.rpi.edu/dept/arc/training/latex/resumes/
