Resume Extractor

The Resume Extractor tool helps recruiters set-up an extraction task between a start-date and end-date from their email inbox. 

TurboHire AI automatically determines which document is a resume or not using an advanced classification engine. 

Following are the steps:

  1. Navigate to the Settings > Advanced Settings > Resume Extractor. 
  2. Click on Add Resume Extraction Task button at the top middle. 
  3. The extraction task in order to Download Resumes would require you to provide the following information:
    1. Email Information: Type of Mail Account.
    2. Email Address
    3. Password (Rest assured TurboHire does not store any email id or password of the user).
    4. Resume Bank: Select the resume bank from the drop-down which will be utilized for downloading resumes. 
    5. Filters: Select the Time Window to extract the emails that were received during that period.
  4. Click on Create A New Task button and the process of extraction will start.

Once the task is set-up, the extractor tool will automatically go in your inbox and give you live updates of the number of resumes found and emails processed. 


The resume extractor task is great to get all the old resumes from your inbox but for all the new incoming resumes you may not want to set up tasks again and again. Using auto-forwarding you can get all the new resumes in your TurboHire account.
