Résumé Brainstorming

Where are résumés published?

  • Personal Website
  • Job sites
    • Monster
    • Dice
    • Hotjobs
    • CareerBuilder
    •  ?
  • classified sites
    • craigslist
  • company websites
    •  ?

It would be ideal if we could create an xml resume schema (based on one of the two existing works), and then write tools to generate it into whatever format is desired: semantic xhtml, microformat hCard, proprietary XML (ie - monster.com xml).

Application of current microformats

See Resume Formats for a description of common résumé elements.

Contact

The contact info block of a résumé could be expressed with an hCard 1.0.

Education

Educational experience could be expressed as a list of hcalendars. The rationale is that education can be viewed as a long-running event- it would be easy to reuse the vocabulary from hCalendar 1.0 for describing events.

Work Experience

Just like Education, work experience could be expressed as a list of hcalendars.

Additionally, within a particular work experience, the list of job titles could be expressed as hcards.

Skills

Skills could be expressed as tags, using relTag.

Publications

Any publications, presentations, or other works could be represented by a citation microformat

References

References could be expressed as a list of hcards, though web-based résumés tend to be light on using references.

endorsements

LinkedIn allows users to endorse others' resumes. This functionality could be capture with Vote Links.
