The Best Way To Parse Scanned Resumes - RChilli OCR Technology
May 08, 2022 by Rohini Sood
Recruiters receive hundreds of CVs in various formats daily, but most are not always readable or searchable. Manually scanning through these resumes is a tedious task for the recruiters.
What would recruiters do in such a situation?
They have two options:
The first option is to scan all the resumes they receive manually. But what would happen if they were in the hundreds or thousands? I believe it is not a brilliant idea to work all day on resume scanning.
And the second one is that they can leverage a unique tool that converts the PDF document into any required editable format. Thus, saving their valuable time and effort.
Don't you think most of us would choose the second option?
OCR - A Perfect Solution for Parsing Scanned Resumes
Candidates today are tech-savvy and devise new ways to come up with different resume formats in terms of presentation, file type, fonts, and layout.
Therefore, a perfect system should extract relevant information from the resumes, irrespective of their format, as quickly as possible and help recruiters gather info about candidates' experience, skills, and academic achievements.
What is OCR-based Parsing?
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is the tool that converts the various format documents (scanned copies, images, pdf files, etc.) into an editable and searchable format.
RChilli has included Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to scan the printed document and digitize the entire text with its resume parser. It is available as an add-on.
