I just discovered a cool way to visually see if you're a good match for a position, thanks to my colleague, Gary Bergmann, who is always on the cutting edge of technology and creativity! It's called Wordle http://www.wordle.net/. What you do is copy and paste your resume into the Wordle text box, and it will generate a graphic design of the words on your resume, highlighting the key words that appear most often. After you Wordle your resume, Wordle your cover letter too. Then Wordle the job description you're applying to in order to get a quick, visual depiction as to whether or not you're a good match for the position. If you're not seeing comparable key words standing out, then it's time to rewrite your resume and cover letter.
