There are many possible solutions, depending on what outcome you want
and what things your familiar/comfortable with using. Emacs has support
for working in LaTex, Texinfo, XML/Docbook, HTML, SGML, etc. There are
also many useful modes that can take basic ascii or various 'mark down'
type formatting as input to produce various outputs. For example, muse
(wiki like mark down), org mode, bhl mode etc, that can export data in
various formats including HTML, PDF, PS, LatEx, info etc. 

I have done a lot of text processing type work with emacs using Auctex
and various LaTeX modes. The comprehensive tex archive network (CTAN)
has lots of latex packages/modes/styles for doing many different types
of documents, including writing a CV. I personally find LatEx and auctex
mode a very powerful text processing framework that allows me to produce
output in various different formats and would recommend using it.
