What is resume parsing?

Resume parsing is the process by which a resume or CV is automatically converted and imported into your ATS. Specific candidate information—name, email address, phone number—is imported from the resume file into fields within your ATS, allowing you to search easily, filter, and access that specific information about a candidate in just a few clicks.
