I applied for a lot of jobs and interviewed a LOT in the early part of my career.
I changed my resume up all the time to see what worked best, and I suggest you do the same. Every time you make a new iteration of your resume, it will likely be slightly better than the last one. If you let a resume sit for a week, and then come back and read it, chances are you'll think Wow, this sucks, I can do so much better.
That said, here are three examples of resumes with the exact same work experience. I personally like the last one best, and the first one least. But the point of posting all three, is that you can see how different formatting, choice of words, and even completely different bullet points can create a much better result.
Another reason to change up your resume is to tailor it for a specific position. These are all geared toward a Decision Support Analyst role, but I typically use keywords from job postings in the resume I'll be sending to apply to that specific job. This is more time-consuming that sending the same resume for every application, but it's worth the effort.
