Sean, I think we do agree -- we agree that sending a customized resume is
the best way to present oneself for employment. I may have read the
original post incorrectly, but I thought that the question was "how can I
save my own time in creating a customized resume (which in turn saves the
recruiter's time) using certain technology?"
The poster's initial attempt was to save his own time by creating a
general resume. When he realized it wasn't saving the recruiter's time in
presenting him for jobs, he asked for input on how he could save time on
both ends. Making a modular resume wouldn't be that difficult to do --
make a database of all your skills, abilities, accomplishments, education,
training, etc. and then plug in the values into a formatted template. The
tech part of it is where things get hairy -- which to use, how to
implement and where to implement (i.e., desktop or web).
