hResume

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

hResume is a microformat for publishing résumé or Curriculum Vitae (CV) information [1] using (X)HTML on web pages. Like many other microformats, hResume uses HTML classes and rel attributes to make an otherwise non-semantic document more meaningful. A document containing resume information could be modified to use hResume without altering the appearance to the browser.

Structure[edit]

hResume provides for ten main areas of information, each denoted with an appropriately named class, and all of them optional except for contact info.

  • summary
  • contact (uses the hCard microformat)
  • experience
  • achievements related to this work
  • education
  • skills/qualifications
  • affiliations
  • publications
  • performance/skills for performance
  • individualization/specialization/career objectives

An example of hResume being implemented is a social networking site LinkedIn, where it is used on public profile pages. [2]
