I would like to know if there is any kind open/standard resume or Curriculum Viate format which allows interchanging of resumes between systems.

Any hint?

    You'd think that at the very least the 'publications' portion could be transfered using BibTeX. It might also be possible to use micro formats to mark up portions of the CV.

    Unfortunately with todays recruitment industry the way it is, if you make your c.v. highly discoverable… you'll probably regret it!

  • @HarryWood I think one thing is the format you use to share stuff and other thing is how much you share (privacy policy or alike). From my point of view there are pretty unrelated, though I understand your corncern about sharing your personal info. Commented Nov 8, 2013 at 9:01

ResumeRDF seems to be the most "ontological" approach to normalization of CV information. The W3C has another article about ResumeRDF with further links.


i guess this is an old question, but there is HR-XML now. http://schemas.liquid-technologies.com/hr-xml/2007-04-15/


h-resume (formally hresume) 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.
h-resume is the microformats2 version of hresume.


Take a look at the EU Europass project.

CVs can be saved out in a Europass XML format.
