Importing Resumes using Parsing

iRexButton Each Gopher customer must be registered to use iRex and iRex must be properly set up in Gopher Options in order to utilize this feature.

Note:  If you are currently not set up to use Parsing  and would like to be, please contact BlackDog Recruiting Software Inc.

Note:  The Parsing  feature is only available to those Gopher customers who are on the Gopher Upgrade Plan.

During the iRex import process, the following occurs in Gopher:

      A Profile record is created for the candidate.  The body of the resume will be scanned for keywords in the Gopher keyword dictionary and any matches will be saved in the Skills box of the profile record.

      A Resume record is created in Gopher.  This is a text version of the resume enabling you to perform searches.

      The original resume is saved to the folder specified on the ‘DB Security’ tab of Gopher Options and linked to the Resume record in Gopher.  This enables you to quickly open the resume in the associated application and make any needed changes to it or print it.  Refer to “Linking a file” in the “Linking Files” chapter for more information on linked files. 

      A Planner record is created in order for you to quickly determine the resumes submitted and therefore the names of the candidates to follow up with.

      A Note Pad record is added for the candidate with the comment ‘iRex Submission’.  This only occurs if the Gopher Notes feature is turned on in Gopher Options. 

      The work experience is extracted from the resume and saved to the Work History section of the individual snap shot.  Refer to “Snap Shot Person” in the “Snap Shot” chapter for more information.

      The skills that are found on the resume are compared with the required skills on each open job order.  If matches are found Gopher will add the job order(s) to the candidate's target list.  This is not a guarantee that the candidate is indeed a match for the positions, however, it is something to make notice of.
