Hello _


This problem occurs a lot , why don't we have a sensible open schema for CV's
and a transformation for that into a job application ?  
I guess the answer is the scope of it is too large to be feasable for most
organisations and competition seems to be preventing collaboration amongst
those of scale that could do it.  


It would be doable from linkedin if they where not so heavily in the pocket of
sales and recruitment people , my guess is that market generates more money
than doing something usefull for the users that actually provided its data. ho

Just a thought
