   <a class="p-contact h-card" href="http://example.org">
    <img src="http://example.org/photo.png" alt="" />
    Joe Bloggs
  <p class="p-summary">Joe is a top-notch llama farmer with a degree in <span class="p-skill">Llama husbandry</span> and a thirst to produce the finest wool known to man</p>

Get started

The class h-resume is a root class name that indicates the presence of an h-resume.

See microformats2-parsing to learn more about property classnames.


h-resume properties, inside an element with class h-resume:

All properties are optional.


h-resume is a microformats.org draft specification. Public discussion on h-resume takes place on h-resume-feedback and the #microformats irc channel on irc.freenode.net.

h-resume is ready to use and implemented in the wild, but for backwards compatibility you should also mark h-resumes up with classic hResume classnames.

Property Details

(stub, add any property explanations here)

p-skill has a proposed expansion into competency with explicit summary, rating and/or duration components. Based on existing real world adoption, we should consider an h-skill vocabulary with p-name, p-rating, and dt-duration properties.

Parser Compatibility

Microformats parsers SHOULD detect the following root class name and property names. A microformats2 parser may use existing microformats parsers to extract these properties. If an "h-resume" is found, don't look for an "hresume" on the same element.

compat root class name: hresume
properties: (parsed as p- plain text unless otherwise specified)


h-resume is based on the existing hResume specification.
