<entry-title>h-resume</entry-title> Tantek Çelik (Editor)

h-resume is a simple, open format for publishing resumes and CVs on on the web. h-resume is one of several open microformat draft standards suitable for embedding data in HTML/HTML5.

h-resume is the microformats2 update to hResume.

Per CC0, to the extent possible under law, the editors have waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to this work. In addition, as of 2023-11-28, the editors have made this specification available under the Open Web Foundation Agreement Version 1.0.


Here is a simple resume example:

<div class="h-resume">
  <a class="p-contact h-card" href="http://example.org">
    <img src="http://example.org/photo.png" alt="" />
    Joe Bloggs
  <p class="p-summary">Joe is a top-notch llama farmer with a degree in <span class="p-skill">Llama husbandry</span> and a thirst to produce the finest wool known to man</p>

Get started

The class h-resume is a root class name that indicates the presence of an h-resume.

See microformats2-parsing to learn more about property classnames.


h-resume properties, inside an element with class h-resume:

  • p-summary - overview of qualifications and objectives
  • p-contact - current contact info in an h-card
  • p-education - an education h-event event, years, embedded h-card of the school, location.
    Main article: h-card
  • p-experience - a job or other professional experience h-event event, years, embedded h-card of the organization, location, job-title.
    Main article: h-card
  • p-skill - a skill or ability, optionally including level and/or duration of experience
  • p-affiliation - an affiliation with an h-card organization

All properties are optional.


h-resume is a microformats.org draft specification. Public discussion on h-resume takes place on h-resume-feedback, the #microformats irc channel on irc.freenode.net, and microformats-new mailing list.

h-resume is ready to use and implemented in the wild, but for backwards compatibility you should also mark h-resumes up with classic hResume classnames.

Property Details

(stub, add any property explanations here)

p-skill has a proposed expansion into competency with explicit summary, rating and/or duration components. Based on existing real world adoption, we should consider an h-competency vocabulary with p-summary, p-rating, and dt-duration properties.

Parser Compatibility

Microformats parsers SHOULD detect the following root class name and property names. A microformats2 parser may use existing microformats parsers to extract these properties. If an "h-resume" is found, don't look for an "hresume" on the same element.

compat root class name: hresume
properties: (parsed as p- plain text unless otherwise specified)

  • summary
  • contact - including compat root vcard in the absence of h-card
  • education - including compat root vevent in the absence of h-event
  • experience - including compat root vevent in the absence of h-event
  • skill
  • affiliation - including compat root vcard in the absence of h-card


h-resume is based on the existing hResume specification.
