Maybe. Maybe it's a lot of work and ultimately the
payoff is questionable, at best. The technology is
cool, though. A couple of thoughts:

1) I want to know before a recruiter submits my resume
for a job.

2) I really don't want a recruiter creating or
building my resume for me, even if I provide the
blocks. I don't mind if they advise, but I gotta do

3) If I were a potential employer and I saw an option
for creating multiple resumes from a candidate, I'd be
uncertain about their committment for my particular
field, firstly, and secondly, if available, I'd build
my own resume of that person and see what shook
out--and they might not like it because I would
deliberately test for weak links in the content.
