I was an accounting/finance recruiter for a while, and I have some of tips that might help.
Just as you would keyword your articles so people can find them, you should utilize keywords in your resume. Be specific to the job you want. Less experienced recruiters and HR personnel may not understand what a hiring manager is looking for (especially if the job you are looking for is higher level or technical in nature), so they will actually look for buzz words provided to them. I recall a specific instance where a job called for an experienced auditor, and all of the candidates who used the term "assurance" instead of "auditing" (assurance is a synonym for auditing in public accounting) were immediately thrown out because the recruiter didn't know what "assurance" meant. This is especially important when your resume is submitted through an online database. The computer system only knows how to return matches, so if the right keywords aren't listed on your resume, the employer may never see it.
Also, keep in mind that recruiters and HR managers sometimes get so many resumes that yours will be scanned for a few seconds before they make a decision to keep or throw out. So, make the most impact on the top part of the first page. In fact, a second page is rarely looked at in these instances, so if you can swing a one-page resume, then do it.
Finally, don't write large blocks of text. No one wants to read paragraphs, but everyone can scan bullet points. Be as succinct as possible to make the most impact.
Hope this helps!
