Resume parsing can be done as part of the recruitment process, and it describes the act of converting a document into structured information done by software. This makes it easier to store the data, report on it, and search through it.
The purpose of resume parsing is to help hiring managers and recruiters more efficiently manage the information contained in resumes. It can also quicken the recruitment process by making it simpler to compare employee attributes, qualifications, and experience against each other. This eliminates the manual processing of resumes and cover letters, saving recruiters hours of time spent reviewing these each day.
