Use words that are mentioned in the job requirement details of an employer.

Sell the benefits:

You will surely have some benefits in your resume that will attract an employer. It is nice to have them surely, but if you do not show them then you will not benefit from them. When the employer reads your resume he has to have a clear picture of you. Highlight your benefits and with each benefit that you highlight, the employer has a clear picture of how you can be an asset to the organization.
