In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Resume Parsing API in 5 minutes using Python and Eden AI Resume Parsing API. Eden AI provides an easy and developer-friendly API that allows you to extract structured informations from resumes.
Resume parsing is a technique based on OCR that automatically reads resumes. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a technology that recognizes text within a digital image. Resume Parsing intervenes in the pre-qualification of applicants and allows to find the best talents in a minimum of time. Parsing analyzes the CV and extracts data from the document to insert it into a spreadsheet or into a customized software program in order to structure and classify them.

To perform Resume Parsing, you'll need to create an account on Eden AI for free. Then, you'll be able to get your API key direclty from the homepage with free credits offered by Eden AI.
Now that you have imported packages on Python and got your API key, you will be able to extract information from your resumes. With Eden AI, you can choose from a wide range of engines you want to use Resume Parsing. You can access Resume Parsing providers on our documentation here.
Here is the Python script you need to write on your notebook:
For example, we called two different Resume Parsing engines. Eden AI API will then return in its JSON response results of those providers.
Once the request is done, you will be able to get the result with this print:
Here is an example of a Resume Parsing response:
Using Resume Parsing with Eden AI API is quick and easy.
We offer a unified API for all providers: simple and standard to use, with a quick switch between providers and an access to the specificic features of each provider
The JSON output format is the same for all suppliers thanks to Eden AI's standardisation work. The response elements are also standardised thanks to Eden AI's powerful matching algorithms.
With Eden AI you have the possibility to integrate a third party platform: we can quickly develop connectors. To go further and customize your Resume Parsing request with specific parameters, check out our documentation.
