TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
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 . . ..
