They'll "compress it" if you're lucky. What I've seen from recruitment
agencies is more like putting it through a trash compactor.

Avoid by any means possible having an agency re-write your resume! When I'm
hiring, the resume * is * the qualification (for the interview at least). If
I know a recruiter has had his hands on it, I will probably give the poor
victim a second chance, but I will not be favorably predisposed.

I always ask to see the candidate's *real* resume. Agencies who won't send it
to me don't get my business.
