I have a document as follows:

\begin{resume}

\section{Education}

% text here

\hrulefill

\section{Research Experience}

% text here

\hrulefill

\end{resume}

Essentially, I want to add a horizontal line between each section, but given that each section title is in a column on the left, and the content of that section is in a larger column to the right, the horizontal line just spans the second column when I want it to go along the first column of section titles too. Any ideas how to do this?

The text inside the resume environment is shifted right of an amount equal to \sectionwidth in respect to the \section. So you need to go back of that amount of horizontal space.

For this purpose we define a new command \fullhrulefill:

\newcommand{\fullhrulefill}{%
  \hspace*{-\sectionwidth}\hrulefill%
  }

MWE:

\documentclass{res} 

\usepackage{kantlipsum} % only for the example

\newcommand{\fullhrulefill}{%
  \hspace*{-\sectionwidth}\hrulefill%
  }

\begin{document}
\begin{resume}

\section{Education}

\kant[1]

\fullhrulefill

\section{Research Experience}

\kant[1]

\fullhrulefill

\end{resume}
\end{document} 

Output:
