Yeah, manually-done is often the best route for a lot of people. But
wouldn't it be neat if you could post a form on your website that a
recruiter could use to generate a nice clean-n-simple resume with just the
things he needed to present to a lead? Without emailing me to fix one up
or even just attach (assuming I had it at the ready) to an email? Granted
it's a little thing and might not be worth the time to build for most
people, but it would certainly be a good excuse to learn XML if you didn't
know it already and a good example to talk about during an interview.

As for the automated database thing, well, sure. Keep
snippets in a database, or flat files, and paste them
into a larger whole when creating your custom resume
for a job. Am not sure how automated that can be,
though. You pick what you want and you output it or
copy-paste it. I suppose you could even conditionalize
a FrameMaker document, turn on/off conditions to focus
the resume one way, or another, and filter through WWP
Pro to even create an HTML version . . ..

I'd still just manually do it. <g>
