Your resume provides the prospective employer and the hiring manager to judge if you would be the right fit for the job. The best way to enhance your resume so it stands out is to tailor your resume for the job you are applying for. Before you apply for the job, ask yourself why you are interested in the job and what are the unique characteristics and qualifications that you bring to the job. Doing this analysis helps you answer the question "why" and helps you focus on positioning yourself as a candidate.
Once you've done the homework, build your resume to highlight those strengths that make you unique. Always create a new resume for every opportunity you apply for since it is more targeted and is also shows your prospective employer as well as the hiring manager that you are interested in the job and have made the effort to understand why you are a good fit for the job. A cover letter also helps you stand out.
