XCV, short for XML CV, is a file format that facilitates the sharing, display, and evaluation of résumés and curriculum vitaes.
Candidates spend hours drafting the perfect résumé only to be required to rekey the same information over and over again into time consuming forms.
Employers juggle unruly file packages that contain useful and not so useful information. Inefficiencies result from inconsistent presentations that impede suitability assessments.
Job posting sites collect data points on candidates inconsistently. This impedes the transfer of data from one system to another.
Hiring managers have a hard time comparing information on language proficiency, training, experience, and specializations in unstandardized résumés and CVs.
