As proposed on August 23, 2015, we will continue with a base format using the filename extension .cv2. The purpose of creating a .cv2 is to focus solely on defining a universal and extensible resume format.
Existing solutions are based on one way to present a resume, thereby mostly excluding other options, formats, and visualizations. Much like a passport has all important data needed for travelling, a CV 2.0 represents a job passport that can be filtered, printed, and viewed in several formats and visualizations.
After some time, we will collaborate with other Working and Community Groups in order to incorporate standards that are useful for integration into and adoption of the CV 2.0.
Proposals for a .cv2 syntax and calls for contributions will be announced within the next days.
