Over the last five years I've trimmed down my resume quite a bit.

During the past week I've had a recruiter forward two client requests, asking whether I had experience with (fill in the blank.)

As it turns out, I have plenty of experience in the two areas, but the description in my resume has morphed into bland, general words on the resume.

A few months ago I looked into what it would take to create and maintain a database of experience, and saw that learning and applying XML to the task would have several benefits. Are there any mere mortals doing this now? If so, what tools are you using?
