Parsing is a process that takes text from a document and puts it into data fields. Having information in data fields is crucial for RecMan to perform searches and quickly obtain the information. Your candidates can do this from their profiles to avoid filling out every field manually, and you can do it from within the system.
RecMan has a partnership with Sovren, which performs the parsing itself. Sovren is an international company, which means that parsing is available in 22 languages. In other words, candidates from abroad may also have their CVs parsed, and the information will end up in the correct fields.
RecMan also has a collaboration with Textkernel, another provider of CV-parsing solutions.
Activating for users
To activate this function, you need System Administrator access to the system. If you are not a system administrator, contact the person in your company with this access.
To activate Sovren, go to System Settings -> Candidates -> CV-parsing. Here you choose which corporation you wish to activate the service for.
Here you will be able to see up-to-date prices for parsing. Check the box to activate the service.
Activating for candidates
To allow candidates to parse their CVs, this has to be activated within the system. The activation is done per corporation, as we did earlier. Go to System Settings -> Corporation, and select which corporation you wish to activate the functionality for. Scroll down until you find Functions.
Once this has been activated, all candidates will get access to CV parsing directly from their candidate profile.
As previously mentioned, both you, as a co-worker and the candidates themselves, can utilize this service.
Parsing from the candidate card
In order to parse as a co-worker, go to a candidate card. Open the files, and look to the far right. After activating, you can see a new button here, as shown below.
As soon as you click this button, the parsing will start. This may take a couple of seconds as the entire document is scanned and translated into data. After a short while, the page will refresh, and the fields will be imported.
Parsing as a candidate
New candidates will also be able to parse. They can choose to upload their CV in a special box that appears once they have registered. The file they choose will automatically be parsed, making the process of filling out their profile very simple. The candidate can upload their files to parse them:
