hResume brainstorming

This page is for brainstorming about various uses and details of hResume in particular. See resume-brainstorming for general brainstorming about a resume microformat.

Event Organisation/Participation

BarCamp - as an organizer or participant this is somewhere between an invited presentation (which would be a publication), and "education". Perhaps there is a need for a new explicit section for such activities and contributions thereto?

Awards

Some awards are for a certain time-frame, others are one-time awards. hCalendar appears appropriate to indicate a list of items with a date or date-range.

Actively Seeking Employment

If hListing structure is found within the hResume document where the lister url is identical to the rel="me" url found in the hResume's hCard, then parsers should indicate this person is actively seeking employment.

An hResume document lists a person's experience and employment history. It does not- and probably shouldn't- indicate whether the person is actively seeking employment.

While a person could state in the opening summary that they're actively seeking employment, this isn't guaranteed to be machine readable with a 100% success rate (different language and structure of text etc).

The existing microformat 'hListing' is being proposed as a means of selling ones' self- and when a person is actively seeking employment, their resume is usually used as a means of selling themselves to prospective employers.

I'm proposing one of two things:

  1. Explict hListing support:
    • If hListing is found, the person is actively seeking employment.
    • If hListing is not found, assume the person is not actively seeking employment.
  2. Implicit hListing support:
    • If hListing is found, the person is actively seeking employment.
    • If hListing is not found, do not assume the person is not actively seeking employment.

Research

Previously

hResume is the classic microformats predecessor for h-resume. Work on hResume is documented at the following for historical purposes. Much of the general discussion and research likely still applies.

The hResume specification is a work in progress. As additional aspects are discussed, understood, and written, they will be added. These thoughts, issues, and questions are kept in separate pages.
