The problem occurs when you use field collections with the hidden widget (you don't want to embed the form on the edit page). But that means that users cannot change the ordering of items in a multiple field collection field. So one solution would be to introduce a new widget that provides a listing on the edit page with the usual drag & drop table order mechanism. It could display the field collection items as usual with edit/delete links.

A resume will have the most resent education or job experience listed first or at the top. When a new educational experience is added to eRecruiter it is added to the bottom. Even then the user might want to insert an edited education experience. So there needs to be a way to control the delta of items.
