Community & Business Groups


Welcome to the CV 2.0 – Global Resume Community Group! Join the group and participate in the creation of a global resume specification. We are looking forward to input and contributions from:

  • recruiters
    you can help us with decisions that are best explained from the perspective of someone who looks at resumes daily and knows the issues that come along with it
  • developers
    you can participate by implementing systems that use the specification and by contributing to the specification itself
  • interaction designers
    you can give feedback on existing designs or help with example templates for a CV 2.0
  • marketers
    you can contribute by sharing the idea and getting people on board – the whole CV 2.0 idea only works if people actually use it
  • researchers
    you can improve the specification and systems by conducting studies around the CV 2.0
  • everyone else who fits in several or none of the above categories
    you are welcome to participate with ideas, suggestions, experience, feedback, and concerns regarding a global resume

Communication Within the Group

The main communication is conducted via the public mailing list. You will be automatically subscribed to two mailing lists. One is for public reading – anyone can read and write to it – whereas the internal list is for administrative purposes such as, for example, detailed meeting information. Please read the W3C information on mailing lists. Once the group has more than 15 participants, we will add biweekly teleconferences, i.e. twice a month.


You can find the goals, scope, and more details about this group in the charter.
