|Use of specification:
Sovren Resume Parser implements the HR Open Standards Consortium's Resume.xsd with
optional User Area extensions. The Resume Parser parses a candidate's CV
or resume into the HR-XML Resume format.
Parser ships with the companion Sovren Resume Converter that takes source
resumes in native formats such as Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, HTML,
Adobe PDF, Rich Text Format, etc., and converts them into plain text. The
Parser uses this converted text and extracts the applicant's Contact Info, Job
Objective, Executive Summary, Education, Work History, Military History, Honors
and Achievements, Speaking Events History, Publication History, Patents,
Licenses, Certifications, Qualifications, Associations, Security Credentials,
The Parser then constructs a valid
HR-XML Resume XML string containing all of this extracted data. The Parser is
written such that the parsed results are available as either an HR-XML record,
or as a Resume object whose properties can be traversed directly in code.
Additionally, parsed results are available as CSV files, and in human-readable
the Parser uses UserArea extensions to store information calculated by the
parser that describes what kind of skills categories best describe the
candidate (such as IT/Database Admin or LEGAL/Administrative). The Parser also
uses a Comments node to store information calculated by the Parser, including
Total Months of Work Experience, Total Months of Management Experience, Current
Management Level, Summary of Management History, and whether the candidate's
stated Job Objective fits his or her experience and education.
The Parser ships with over 15
ready-to-run sample applications and web services, with full application source
code included. The Parser therefore does not require a messaging framework.
The Parser is a native .NET
component, but can also be used as a traditional COM component or within a Web
Service that can be called from any environment including PHP, Ruby on Rails,
Java, ColdFusion, etc.
