FRESCA

The FRESH Résumé & Employment Schema

The FRESH résumé schema is an open source, standards-friendly, JSON/YAML-driven format for résumé / CVs and other employment artifacts.

FRESH is supported as a native format by both FluentCV Desktop and Command Line and can be trivially converted to and from JSON Resume.

What It Does

FRESCA establishes an optimized, human-readable, computer-friendly representation for your résumé and career data based on JSON or equivalent YAML...

// Pared-down FRESH/FRESCA resume representation (JSON)

  "name": "Jane Doe",
  "info": { /* Basic info */ },

}

..which you can use to generate resumes and other career artifacts in specific concrete formats (HTML, LaTeX, Markdown, PDF, etc.) as well as enable 21st-century analysis of your resume and career data...

...in a way that's not possible with traditional, 20th-century resume tools and formats.

Anatomy of a FRESH Resume

FRESCA resumes are:

  • Text-based.
  • Versionable.
  • Standards-compliant.
  • Human-readable/editable.
  • Computer-friendly / easily parsable by tools.
  • Built from JSON or equivalent YAML.
  • Used to generate specific formats like HTML, PDF, or LaTeX.
  • Free from proprietary structures or site- and/or tool-specific lock-in.
