Can I Trademark a Resume?
No, you cannot trademark a resume. Trademarks specifically cover the materials used to promote your goods or services. Since a resume does not fit that criteria, it is not something for which you can register a trademark.
This doesn't mean that you cannot trademark certain elements found on a resume, however.
You can create and register a trademark for a personal name or logo, so long as you use that name or logo to promote your products or services. That name or logo could then be placed upon a resume. In this scenario, the name or logo would be protected but the contents of the resume would not be.
