Thank you Dan and all for the excellent list of resources on the subject.

I was aware of hResume, but believed that since schema.org seems like the
"shared markup" that industry agreed on, it would worth to have a similar
"template" in schema. (please excuse my ignorance regarding current status
and relationship between schema/microdata/RDFa/microformats, I don't follow
the politics)

I am also wondering whether the semantically produced HTML file could be
used instead of/in parallel with proprietary formats that the
job recruitment industry is currently using to exchange and store Resumes.
In my understanding, big job recruiting agencies, use applications that
parse and store the information of a CV automatically - and 9 out of 10
times a Word (.doc) document format is required for this to function well.

Dan, I will study http://schema.org/docs/full.html later and see where
a Resume could fit and if not what is missing so that a majority of today's
popular CV's information are properly tagged. By reading Bob Gladstein's and
Peter Sefton's discussion in the old Google Group you mentioned, it seems to
me that there is a need to mark Previous Jobs a person had. Bob and Peter
had different approaches whether this belongs to Event or Person.
In case a proposal is made, is it possible for new properties to be added in
the schema? (such as workedFor for example)
