I have found a good template for resume here: http://www.rpi.edu/dept/arc/training/latex/resumes/

I use the first one.

What would be an easy way to add the logo of the school/company to the left of each paragraph?

    Welcome to TeX.SE! Why do you want the logo to be on the left of each paragraph? Can you show us with a MWE, what you have tried until now?

The images are placed in the left margin wherever you execute \schoolimage[<opt>]{<image>}.

Note that, since I'm using zref and require .aux-file \label-\refs to be active, I \let\nofiles\relax.
