In the earlier stages of the hiring process, whoever is reading your resume will be looking mostly for evidence of can you do the job, but also some of the other two. By the middle stages, the question of can you do the job is usually established, and the focus shifts to will and fit. In the final stages, it is almost all about fit.
You can craft your resume to include evidence of all three, so that no matter what stage, you can address all three questions.
Use the right amount of keywords in the right balance to demonstrate that you have the right skills so that you can do the job.
Use your accomplishments to illustrate the kinds of challenges and situations that establish that you will do the job.
Both of those can also help establish that you are a good fit. But also try to use the language that your prospective future coworkers use to talk shop, and show similarity through your background and career experiences.
