One is, redo your resume to match the advertisement. There will be lots of resumes going to the prospective employer, and yours must stand out. You can’t just send in a general purpose resume: you need to tailor it to match what they’re asking for in the advertisement.

The other is, use the same keywords the hiring manager has used in the advertisement.
