The Problem with Resume Parsing

By September 7, 2016 February 25th, 2019 No Comments

If you have a recruitment database or CRM, chances are it contains ‘parsing’ technology.   This was once a new tool that was a dream for those with HR/Consulting roles and a great way to sort through an endless stream of candidates.


Parsing software scans candidate applications by keyword and adds them to a searchable database. The problem is, the system can be fooled and smart applicants load their resume with keywords they know will be flagged by the parsing tool. The other is you may miss a qualified candidate or pass too many through your initial ‘gate’.
But, there is a solution.
