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.

Possible Extensions

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?

Actively Seeking Employment

If hListing draft 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 draft' 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.
