Here's a website for you. It talks about key words:
Try and limit your resume and cover to one page each. Be brief. Highlight pertinent and important issues. Allow the interviewer to fresh out the details in an oral interview. Remember HR has to read 100's of resumes and get through them quickly... if too wordy, it gets set aside. For instance:
2001 - 2005 XYZ Corp, Los Angeles, CA. Director of new product development. Responsible for staff of 12. Expert knowlegde in all aspect of computer programs and software.
2001 - 2005 XYZ, Corp., near the Staple Center, on Grand, in the Cuty of Angeles (Los Angeles). Started in the shipping department and after putting in long hard hours was finally promoted to the director of new product development. My staff comes and goes but generally there is between 10 - 12. I am responsible for creating their job duties and supervising all aspects of their work. I get in at 8 just to make sure everyone is at their desk...

OK alittle over the top but you get my drift (I've actually seen a resume similar to the latter one). Keep it simple especially if there is no job history. Employer's know when they see bull so don't go there.
