I am working on a CRM/ATS - Applicant Tracking System which needs a resume parser.

Please advice which third party solution we can use or any open source or classes available.

    What format are those resumes you want to parse? Are those in text, PDF, or something else?

    Do they follow some kind of structure?

      Hi Lemos, I like to get it as a PHP array or XML, which I can convert to an array.

      Sorry, I meant the resume format. Is it in plain text, PDF, Word, or some other format? Does the text in those resumes follow some kind of consistent structure?

      That would be in PDF and Word

      there is no proper structure, it can be any structure.

      There are classes to extract text from PDF and Word.

      But without a specific structure it is impossible to concieve a package that extracts whatever you expect from a Resume.

      How do you expect it to work?

      Just put the URLs without http:// .

      There are some free resume parser APIs at least for small quantities a month. Have you tried those?

      I tried one, Recruit Plus Parser, which is giving me a 30% accuracy, I am working on a Applicant Tracking System, so I am searching for a class to parse CVs in Word and PDF.
