Here are some friends with simlar question as we.And I have this question for many days,anyone help us?
Kitty said: Yes.What are my rights -Recruitment agent modified my CV without my knowledge?-I try seach this on internet but no results found.Maybe this is a stupid question.
Mike said: oh,no,you are wrong.I have found as below for this question(What are my rights -Recruitment agent modified my CV without my knowledge?),it will help you,my kids.

I attended a second intervew with a company yesterday and while I was being interviewed, I noticed, that the copy of my CV that my potential employer had looked different to what I had initially sent to my recruitment agent. Furthermore, I was then asked to give details about my particular experience with Accounts listed in my CV as part of my previous job (I saw with my own eyes written there!), and it came as a HUGE surprise, because I know for sure that I have never ever written it, since my preivious employer%26#039;s Accounts department is in Bristol and I had nothing to do with it whatsoever!! However, not to make a big fuss, I answered the question without giving away that I had no idea what was going on!
this was the second interview for this position, so they might actually offer me the job. Now I fear that I have been missold, I dont know what other lies were there! What do I do? Should I sue the recruitment agency? What are my rights? What are my options? What would you do?

All agencies modify CVs! Some will simply reformat it so that it fits their standard, but others will rewrite the whole thing. This is because the general public as a whole have no idea how to write a CV, and agencies would look unprofessional if they pass the tat that they get directly to an employer, so they need to amend it so that%26#039;s it%26#039;s in a suitable format and contains all the relevant information, and doesn%26#039;t contain any irrelevant information.

With regards to you not having put %26quot;Accounts%26quot; on your CV, that doesn%26#039;t matter if when the agent interviewed you, it had come up in conversation. I would suggest that if you were able to come up with an answer in the interview for a question related to this, then you would have been fine answering a question from the agency about it.

So, what would I do? Nothing. That%26#039;s what agencies do. If you don%26#039;t like it then don%26#039;t use an agency, but your options for employment are going to be severly limited if you don%26#039;t.

The other thing is, being %26quot;missold%26quot; is ridiculous. I would argue that you have missold yourself. If a question came up in the interview relating to something that you had no idea about, then you should have said so. But you didn%26#039;t. And remember - CVs don%26#039;t get you a job; they get you an interview. It%26#039;s your interview that gets you a job. So what you said or didn%26#039;t say carries far more weight than what was printed on a piece of paper.

In the UK I believe that when you go to a recruitment agency you sign an agreement with them which allows them to amend your CV - after all, they are the experts. However, they should only reword what you have already written or amend the layout. They should not fabricate anything on your CV - I%26#039;m not sure about the legitimacy of doing this, but its professionally wrong. I would see if there is a regulator of recruitment companies and report them - check out this link http://www.berr.gov.uk/employment/employ...

Well first off im only a 14 year old but im pretty sure thats illegal to modify someone else details without permission. Just hope that if you get the job it doesnt rely on the lies that have been written on your CV.

What agency was it?
I guess it was one of the big ones.
They are useless - they can modify your CV so that it%26#039;s potentially more appealing to an employer, but they can%26#039;t go around completely making stuff up.
You should ring up the person who was dealing with you and have a go at them saying how unprofessional this is, how bad it%26#039;s made you look and that they quite frankly are not up to the job.
Don%26#039;t bother trying to get any sort of compensation, it%26#039;s not going to happen. Move on, never use them again and next time you deal with a useless recruitment agency make sure YOU are in control not them, hassle them and phone them and keep asking them questions.
I NEVER go to a interview arranged by an agency without a copy of the exact CV they have sent to the employer.
These people can earn a few thousand out of you. Be mad, be very mad.

They once sent me off for an interview for a job that didn%26#039;t even exist!!! Thats how bad some agencies are.

The key here is HOW you found out the two CV%26#039;s were different--did you happen to %26quot;peek%26quot; when maybe you shouldn%26#039;t have? If you were shown something that was inaccurate, you should have set the record straight immediately--%26quot;honesty being the best policy%26quot; sounds trite, but it is still a truism. But that is hindsight. What you are faced with is a difficult decision: (A) do nothing and pray it all works out, which is iffy, or (B) come clean if you are offered the position, or maybe even before. Offer to explain, and be honest. Employers value honesty quite highly, and if you end up not getting the job, you will know that even though things didn%26#039;t go quite your way, you were true to yourself, and thats more important than any employer that doesn%26#039;t appreciate your honesty.
