What is resume parsing?
Resume parsing is the automated process of storing, categorizing, and analyzing job resumes. Resume parsing software helps recruiters easily search and filter through large quantities of candidate resumes to streamline the hiring process and find the best applicants in just a few clicks.
Resume parsing tools are included in most Applicant Tracking System (ATS) platforms. Specific candidate information – name, email, address, phone number – is imported from the resume file into fields within your ATS, allowing you to access that specific information about a candidate.
How do resume parsers work?
Most resume parsers operate by the user uploading the resume file into the parsing tool (some even feature a drag-and-drop interface) and confirming which fields or data should be imported. Once these steps are complete, the candidate now exists as a record in the ATS.
