Single, Common Resume Format
Jeremy references XMLResume, a shot at an XML resume format for rendering in many ways. This is something I've been hoping for. I was particularly frustrated during my last job search (2 years ago) when after spending a great deal of time writing and formatting my resume that each different job listing/application/board required my resume in some other format. The most annoying was Monster, which required breaking the resume into chunks and entering it into a series of web forms.
It's about time someone made it possible to have one core resume format that can be rendered in a variety of ways. Next time I look for a job maybe they'll accept my resume in this XML format.
