Just ask. I once was able to see resumes coming in from my agency - after they
placed me at the company. They were faxed using a cheap fax and full of
errors. I had taken so much time to do my resume in a pleasing and
professional manner. They re-typed it so the agency could present itself in a
consistent manner.

I asked my recruiter if she had ever looked at one from the client's point of
view. She admitted they had a "girl" come in and type them up.
