They also give an opportunity to show that you care about how you present and express yourself. I fail to see how a well-presented resume could imply less skill in any job; someone of any resume-writing skill level could put together a well-presented resume by recognizing their weaknesses and enlisting the help of a proofreader or something.

Or, the individual in question may realize just how much they suck at
resume writing and have paid someone to take their bare bones resume
and make it more presentable, including checking for grammar and
language usage.
