Affinda’s Resume Extraction Tool

A resume parser works by using artificial intelligence to take unstructured data from written information and turning it into structured data. By pulling out the main facts from the candidate information you receive, you’ll be able to easily compare and analyse your applicants during the hiring process. You can then use this information to populate candidate profiles within your applicant tracking system so you can revisit an applicant’s information at any time. No more scouring through your emails to find the right application!

The information extraction tool will show you crucial information on candidates such as contact information, work experience, past job titles, qualifications, certifications, references, and skills.

Resume parsing software is ideal for recruiters, human resource professionals, hiring managers, and job boards. Spend less time browsing CVs and use resume parsing software to get straight to the relevant details and compare candidates against the job description. Improve your hiring process with this one simple tool.

Resume Parser API

An online CV parser is an incredibly useful tool as it can be used in your favourite browser without a download. However, many people find it helpful to connect a data extraction tool to their ATS.

In this case, you’d benefit from our high-quality resume parser API. This can be linked to your ATS to automatically populate your candidate database, making it simpler than ever to find the most relevant candidate information.

The resume parser API is also perfect for those who work with large quantities of resumes on a regular basis. The API enables you to quickly process bulk loads of resumes and pull out the most valuable details.
