New release CV parsing

Textkernel is proud to present you with a new edition of its CV parsing software Extract!. Below you can find the most important new and improved features.

New features:

  • Extraction of computer skill levels
    Textkernel can now parse the level of expertise per computer skill as indicated in the CV. This allows you to quickly evaluate whether the candidate meets the required skill level.
  • Configuration available for customer specific skills
    Generic skill levels (such as ‘expert’ or ‘2 years’) can also be extracted for other (non IT) specific skills.
  • Integration of the ESCO skill and job title taxonomy
    Textkernel is the first HR technology vendor that offers implementation for the ESCO taxonomy. ESCO is the European classification system for skills, competences, qualifications and occupations and enables exchange of CVs and job vacancies between different IT systems.
