Are you a headhunter or jobseeker ? Would you be uploading many files ? Maybe from a database ? Or are you looking for a quick extract to match a next CV formatting ?

For jobseekers

You can LinkedIn that way you kill two birds with one stone

  • Import your résumé Feature (This will scan your document to try fill out the rest of your professional profile. You will be able to do edits in Review Experience and Education section )
  • Use the largest professional network to allow headhunters to search for you on uploading your resume


Sovren is used by Career Builder and SAP

Talent Tech Resume Mirror Extraction used by Sun MicroSystems and Workopolis

There is also Resume Chilli which gives a demo here

Only two products are HR XML certified . One is RChilli and Sovren.
And with my earlier experience RChilli support team is best. you can catch them any time. And in these type of software this does matter.
