Likewise, with your resume when you go out fishing for job, you need your fish food to attract the right interview call. The fish food here is the keywords you use in your resume.

Examples. Instead of design and analysis of gas turbine, say aerodynamic/
mean line design of centrifugal impeller or stress analysis of compressor. Be specific and use keywords that really tell what you did. Like stress/life and fatigue calculation of BLISK, instead of saying doing performance analysis of gas turbine, use keywords.
