Have someone else take a look at it? A fresh pair of eyes will likely catch any mistakes that you don’t see.

If there's a work resource center in your area they offer this service.

A university or work force center may have services available. A library might as well. Or you could post an ad on Craigslist to pay someone qualified to do it.

Applying for jobs you don't intend to get. If you get called in, you know it's a good one

You don't have to be an English major to pick up obvious errors.  A fresh set of eyes is always the best.

You are correct.  The resume has one purpose and one purpose only - to get you an interview.

Well, I am sort of doing that too I mean I really want out of my job and have my eye on a specific job but there is a 50% chance I won't get the job so... I am applying to others in the meantime. 

So far I did not get a call from one. But I think they were making an offer when I put in my resume.

I applied for another job but won't know until after the first of the new year.

I also had hubby call the local city job service center and uh they were like well we don't proof resumes but we can if you want. Um, how about no. I'm doing an academic higher ed resume I need someone with some awesome grammar and English skills! I was a bit disappointed considering their purpose is to provide services to help you get a job.
