If your staffing firm is having trouble keeping up with the sheer number of applicants for each of your available positions, or you’re just looking to better allocate resources and streamline your vetting, hiring and onboarding process, resume parsing could make everything a whole lot easier. By offloading the tedious part of reading and organizing the resumes your company gets daily, resume parsing takes all the content from your digital resumes and extracts everything for further processing and analysis.
Forget about storing your resumes as physical printouts that can quickly take up rooms of space and leave you dreading the stacks and stacks of resumes, you’ll have to go through to fill the next open position. Digital files aren’t much better, as you still need to open each one and organize the best candidates, which can be even more complicated and frustrating on a computer, and if you get interrupted it’s almost impossible to know where you left off without a stack of paper sitting in front of you.
With resume parsing, you can take one document or many, and harvest the information from a resume or CV while helpfully turning it into a machine-readable format that can be organized and searched along with every other submission you have, and have ever received. In practice, resume parsing software lets you take hundreds of resumes and your entire library of filed resumes and quickly identify the perfect person to fill that crucial new spot. Instead of working harder, you’ll be working smarter, identifying the best candidates in a fraction of the time that it would take with a manual selection process.
If you’re sick of manual data entry, resume parsing will become your new best friend as it takes important contact information and automatically populates pre-designed fields. Once you’ve used resume parsing, we’re sure you’ll never want to go back to the old way of doing things.
Made up of a compiler or interpreter that is responsible for converting each document’s data into a structured format that is more easily manipulated and analyzed, resume parsing is responsible for taking all the building blocks of a resume and conveniently pulling it into your system, allowing you to quickly pull up someone’s contact information or education, work experience or skills, as well as achievements and professional certifications or anything else you’ve chosen to ingest.
COATS integrated Resume Parsing is an optional feature which offers a separate database for resumes. It will keep an original copy of the employee’s resume, allow for a duplicate resume to be redacted and branded to be sent to clients, and keep the full resume text for Boolean searching.With Resume Parsing you can search full text resumes within parsing and the job orders, link a resume to an existing employee or quickly create an employee master record from resume details, as well as track the employees recruitment process via resumes sent to potential clients.
Compatible with various resume formats — such as .doc, .docx and .rtf — a resume parser can grab all your documents on a shared or local computer and create a unique database of everyone that’s applied to your organization quickly and easily. Find relevant matches with just a click and use descriptive searches to unearth that needle in the haystack. Not only will you save time over manual review, but when you finally look at your candidates, you’ll be able to evaluate them with a fresh and clear mind, and that’ll help you make better decisions.
Not only will you appreciate the time you save, but each candidate you suggest will be a better match, and you’ll develop a more comprehensive understanding of who’s applying to your positions and where they’re coming from. What’s more, insights from the data you collect will all but ensure a more efficient and better hiring process, and it makes each hire something to look forward to instead of dread.
