The experience of writing and revising his own resume would be good for him.

I'm sure there's a google-ish way to look at other people's resumes for ideas.  Pick what he likes, and go forward from there.

When I was in college, the computer lab had a big, spiral bound book in it.  When you were about to graduate, you could leaf through 100 or so resumes for ideas.  When you graduated, you put your resume in the book. :-)

It's been my experience that a lot of the people who you pay to "help you find a job" are far more interesting in collecting fees than in getting you a job ...

Search for your target job.

Copy phrases from the job descriptions.

Copy phrases from other resumes.

Nobody writes as good swag as the people who write job descriptions. Tons of buzz words and other things nobody uses in real life. Very professional looking.

Doesn't matter what he writes in his résumé.  He should concentrate on getting a job through networking (i.e., asking for job tips from friends, fraternity brothers, long-lost cousins, next-door-neighbors, etc.).
