Jobscience Offers First Mass Resume Parser for Talent Management

Resume Power Uploads Thousands of Resumes in Minutes -- Saving Time and Improving Candidate Data Quality

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - Jobscience, Inc., the leader in Social Relationship Management for HR, today announced Jobscience Resume Power™, the industry's first high-speed mass resume parser integrated into a Talent Management solution. Jobscience Resume Power saves sourcing specialists and recruiters considerable time by avoiding manual data entry and eliminates the high cost of outsourcing bulk resume loads to a professional services organization. Data quality is dramatically improved as complete resume content, candidate engagement history and the originating channel is captured and tracked.

"The reality is that many resumes never make it into a Talent Management system because it can be such a time consuming process," said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. "The popularity of social recruiting has added to the complexity of centralizing candidate data from disparate channels. But with Resume Power, companies have a cost-effective way to upload, parse and track every resume, whether it came from LinkedIn, Facebook, a job board, email or a job fair. This improves the quality of their database and results in faster/better candidate placements."

This breakthrough technology allows recruiters to upload and parse individual resumes or folders of hundreds or thousands of resumes in just minutes rather than days. Paper resumes collected from job fairs and networking events can be quickly loaded into the same system as digital applicants, avoiding inefficient data entry processes.

"Capturing accurate data about candidates and where they came from is paramount to our business," said Nicola James, Managing Partner at Thomas Brooke International. "We generate referrals and get resumes from a number of different sources and it's time-consuming but important to input high-quality data into a centralized system. Jobscience Resume Power simplifies and speeds up this process. We can efficiently upload complete information into Jobscience -- resume, source, specific job, application stage -- where we can track each candidate's engagement history, improving the quality and accuracy of our candidate information. This helps us know where our top candidates are coming from, so we can most effectively leverage those resources, and also in building and maintaining meaningful relationships with candidates right from the start."

How it Works

Jobscience Resume Power allows users to easily upload individual resumes or folders of resumes from their hard drive into the Jobscience Recruiting application. Uploading is accomplished through a simple drag and drop interface that also allows users to select attributes that apply to a resume, such as job, disposition, and applicant source.

Once uploaded into the Jobscience Recruiting application, the entire content of the resume is parsed and saved as structured data. Parsed resumes can be immediately searched using keywords or hierarchical position taxonomies to fill current job openings or begin new sourcing and recruiting projects.

Jobscience Resume Power can also help eliminate the challenge of getting information from paper resumes into a digital system. Paper resumes are first scanned with an OCR (optical character recognition) scanner and then uploaded into the Jobscience system. OCR scanned resumes retain the drag and drop uploading, attribution selection and parsing capabilities.

Jobscience Resume Power is a standard feature of Jobscience Recruiting and Jobscience Team Edition available now at no extra charge to customers.
