Resume parsers are one of the unsung heroes of recruiting technology. They do the dirty work of extracting resume data and putting into a coherent format inside your ATS.
According to Rchilli, one of the vendors in this space, this is the definition of resume parsing;
“Resume parsing technology converts an unstructured form of resume data into a structured format. CV/Resume parser analyses resume data and extracts it into machine-readable output such as XML, JSON. Resume parsing software helps store, organize, and analyze resume data automatically to find the best candidate.”
