(You can increase your chances if you find a good job posting and copy its buzzwords into your resume. As a rule, your resume should omit any qualifications that aren't relevant to the job you are seeking. Shorter is better for human reading, with a half page being about right. A resume only opens the door; you've still got to sell yourself in a cover letter or on the phone. Don't expect a resume to sell you.)
