Many job postings require a job application to be filled out in addition to sending a resume. These job applications are done online on various webapps. Several of these webapps have a limited ability to import from a traditional resume but it's not perfect. Much of the application process is simply re-entering what was already on the traditional resume or VC.
Are there any resume formats which are known to be more compatible with automatic imports?
Have any of the major HR software vendors published a specification for how to format a resume for easier import into their tools?
