Matthew would like to create a CV repository with a web service interface (a.k.a. the “recruiter’s dream).
I believe this should be easy to do for all the job sites, as they have all the data.
It would also be nice to have a standard format to transmit your CV to someone. Right now, everybody has their own set of html forms to make you enter your data.
You might have a program that would generate some standard format, probably based on HR-XML, that you could just upload instead. As it would be XML based, you could have some fancy XSLT sheets to format stuff nicely.
The raw data would be much easier to compare with others, thus making HR staff’s work a lot easier.
