+ - Copyright or License Your Resume?

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "Have you ever submitted a resume to a recruiter, and the recruiter significantly modified your resume for submission to a prospective employer? In fact, they munged it to the point that you feel that not only the format was changed, but substantial content was modified? Over the years, I have modified my resume many times, working to make it as readable and informative as I can. I will admit it is long, but I have a lot of experience, and I feel it is well laid out and pretty easy to read. I feel that some of the modifications that recruiters make actually detract from the format, and sometimes make the meaning different from the original intent. I can understand removing my contact information when submitting, as they don't want employers doing an end-run around them to contact prospects. Would it be a good idea to attach some kind of copyright, or require that recruiters submit resumes as I submitted to them?"
