I agree with Liz that there is likely little that the rightful owner of the resume can do about the plagiarism, I disagree with the implication that the resume owner does not have a copyright on the resume. Copyrights are automatically created when you create new works such as resumes.

You don't need to put a copyright symbol onto them, you don't need to register them with any governmental or other entity, it just happens. Putting the (c) on your works and registering them with the trademark office provide you with extra protections, but when you create a resume (or pay someone to create one for you) then you own the copyright to it.
