hi @ all,
sorry for my crappy english (german is mothertongue).
at http://grauhirn.org/cv/ you can read about cv, a foaf-namespace for
resume related information. the discussion about a kind of
blog-talent-pool powered by rdf or foaf started at
http://www.buzzmachine.com/archives/2004_02.html#006228 and made Alp
Uckan (http://uckan.info/) and me (Patrick Kollitsch,
http://schreibblogade.de/) thinking about the general possibility of
making available your resume-related information via foaf.
the aim of that namespace is to provide facilities of storing
information a job-search-engine would need. maybe it will be possible to
store all information about a persons resume in the foaf-file and make
it parseable for a kind of job-search-engine or an application for a post.
we made 4 main-elements:
a simple yes/no-mark, if the person is available for jobs and projects
detailed information about an occupation in the past or present
school, study and so on
skills of the person in programs, languages* or specific topics.
* we made an extra language-section here, because the lang:masters from
http://purl.org/net/inkel/rdf/schemas/lang/1.1# has no notation of the
quality the person speaks that language. maybe you got another idea to
the namespace at this time ist more for technical resumes but should be
quite simple extendable for other spheres.
at http://textwerk.grauhirn.org/cv-namespace-fuer-foaf/ you find an
tutorial (sorry, its german) about the namespace, on
http://schreibblogade.de/1013-CV-Namespace-fuer-FoaF-Files.htm is an
anouncement for it (in german too, but you can comment in english).
i appreciate every reponse, comment or report on what you think about
the namespace, its functions (and its right to exist?).
thanks in advance
