Many managers look for specific keywords on résumés. Determine the most important skills that you have for the job you want and put them right up at the front of the résumé.

Put quantifiable accomplishments and responsibilities. If you are the world's greatest salesperson then put statistics like achieved 80% year-over-year sales growth.
4. Keep your résumé position-relevant!
Only put information on the résumé that is relevant to the job opportunity. Before you put anything on your résumé, put yourself in the shoes of the interviewer and as the questions "So what?" and "Why should I care?" If after doing so, you feel the information is relevant then put it on your résumé. If not, leave it out.
