What is resume parsing?
Resume parsing is the process by which a resume 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.
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.
