If I ever get laid off, and I really hope I don't, the best way to prepare to "write your resume" is to read 150 resumes of people who want a job just like the one you want.
I'm on a hiring committee right now. After four hours, I am not quite half-way through a five-inch pile. If you want to get an interview with me, this is what you do.
Create a two-column table. On the left side list the SKA's from the job description. On the right side, list how you have that experience, to what degree of responsibility, and one accomplishment or conclusion.
It's just that simple. Do not write a cover letter with the sentence that I have quoted in the title. Do not make up words. Do not make up experience. We can tell.
