How can I get my Resume to stand out from the hundreds of others when applying for a job?

The short answer is that you need to tailor your resume and cover letter to the job to which you are applying.  One resume or cover letter is not suitable to every position you apply for unless you are applying for the exact same job over and over.  Every advertisement will have specific company requirements and you need to tailor your cover letter to sell your experience to the job and ensure your resume also highlights the key attributes and skills the company is looking for.  Don't make the employer "hunt" through your resume for the information they need.  Lay out the information clearly and highlight the skills and experience you know (from the advertisement ) that the employer is looking for.  A full article on Creating a Killer Resume is available here.
