has been developing high-end applications for efficient
Project Management and Performance Management for various
The latest addition to the suite of Project Management
applications developed by us is an integrated CV
A curriculum vitae (CV), also known as a resumé, is
defined generally as a document containing a summary
or listing of relevant job experience and education,
usually for the purpose of obtaining an interview when
seeking employment. Often the resumé or CV is the first
item that a potential employer encounters regarding
the job seeker, and therefore a large amount of importance
is often ascribed to it.
Curriculum vitae is Latin meaning “course of life”
and resumé is French meaning “summary”. A resumé more
often has a free-form organizational style and is used
for seeking employment in the private sector, whereas
a curriculum vitae (also called vita) usually has a
more standardized look and format for the purpose of
seeking positions in academic or educational institutions.
Another difference is that a resumé tends to be more
descriptive and tailored for a specific purpose or target
audience, whereas a curriculum vitae tends to be organized
in a way that presents data about one's self in a compact
fashion, with a clear chronology.
The module mainly has a definition wizard that sets
up and generates a CV standardized form, which will
be used by the employees to fill in standard field data
such as the educational institutions attended, degrees
received, positions held, professional affiliations,
etc. The various data fields are easily customizable
and can be defined and arranged by the administrator
of the application and includes several sections.
The main identity details like the complete names,
date of birth, gender, contact details etc. are an essential
section to be obligatorily present. The Professional
Experience section, starting from the most recent experience
going chronologically backwards through a succession
of previous experience, works to build credibility through
experience gained, while illustrating career growth
over time. The actual periods of each employment can
be specified in the From and To fields, along with the
type of position held and the main responsibilities
etc. There is another section where the person's professional
and social skillset and competencies etc. can be specified.
Finally there is a section for entering details of the
employee's hobbies and interests which is optional.
Once the form setup is complete, one can start the
process, so that recipients start entering the latest
details. Finally the completed CV form is attachable
to the other modules of the application suite such as
the Appraisals Manager and the 360 degree Feedback module
thereby offering access to the important data about
the employee(s) from within these other applications.
The effective usage of this application in conjunction
with the other tools like the Appraisals Manager will
offer the benefits of:
- Accessing the always-updated CV details of an employee
online at any desired time.
- Having them online also facilitates distribution
to multiple managers via Internet.
- Significant cost savings in regular updates over
traditional methods of manual data gathering and input.

in their database of employee CVs to reduce the number
of CVs which must be reviewed in detail in the search
for the ideal candidates.
