Its all in the approach. Try focusing on quality, as opposed to quantity.

Generic resumes, used for multiple employers, cannot compete against tailored documents. Before applying, research the company's website, social media and Google pages. Customize your resume to the specific employer's needs, highlighting qualifications and skills relevant to the position. Target your cover letter to emphasize why you want to work for that company, and include details to evidence your research and interest.
