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.
Well, there are a lot of ways you could go with it, for sure. I would
imagine if just anyone used it, it would be more for personal use, rather
than making it into a dial-a-resume kinda thing that others would use.
That's probably how I'd use it, if I did, but it's fun imagining the other
ways it could go :-)

Subject: Re: Keep Track of Experience
Maybe. Maybe it's a lot of work and ultimately the
payoff is questionable, at best. The technology is
cool, though. A couple of thoughts:
1) I want to know before a recruiter submits my resume
for a job.
2) I really don't want a recruiter creating or
building my resume for me, even if I provide the
blocks. I don't mind if they advise, but I gotta do
3) If I were a potential employer and I saw an option
for creating multiple resumes from a candidate, I'd be
uncertain about their committment for my particular
field, firstly, and secondly, if available, I'd build
my own resume of that person and see what shook
out--and they might not like it because I would
deliberately test for weak links in the content.
