Affinda’s CV formatting technology rapidly applies consistent branding to whole batches of résumés for candidate submissions — giving you more time to recruit and place candidates.
Our machine-learning automation is brilliant at identifying relevant fields within résumés of widely varying formats, and fitting them all within the branded template you specified. Here are just some of the changes our software can apply to your reformatted CVs:
Automated résumé reformatting (also known as automated CV reformatting) is one of the most exciting new recruitment automation trends. It’s the process of using a smart machine-learning algorithm to reformat the layout, fonts, margins and overall appearance of a candidate’s résumé, in order to align its look and feel with your brand. So instead of spending valuable time copy-pasting résumé fields into your agency’s template one-by-one, you can generate a branded, polished document in seconds, with just a few clicks.
On the process management side
Affinda’s CV formatting software uses machine learning to quickly and intelligently unify résumés of many different appearances into the consistent visual style you choose. This saves you from having to develop your own internal processes for adding logos and headers, adjusting fonts, correcting margins, and redacting candidates’ personal contact info. It also saves you the inconvenience of hiring temps or freelancers, who may not perform at the level of quality you’re expecting, and whose inconsistent work may result in mistakes that cost you a candidate placement. What’s more, our automated reformatting tool saves you the headache of burdening your recruiters with this repetitive labor, when their time can be more profitably spent creating personalized candidate profiles, recruiting and making placements.
On the external client-facing side
Instead of sending out manually formatted candidate submissions — which are prone to error and styling variance — résumé formatting technology enables you to fit any résumé into one single branded template. Branded résumés enhance the professionalism of your communication, serving as a striking visual argument for the quality of the candidates you’re seeking to place. At the time, consistent CV branding turns each résumé into a marketing asset that raises awareness of your company and keeps you top-of-mind among your clients. The more your clients keep your branded résumés on file, the more they’ll learn to recognize your brand — and as a result, they’ll be more likely to think of you next time they’re looking for a candidate to hire.
Definitely! Once you’ve uploaded a batch of résumés, you’re free to select which details should be included in the final reformatted documents. This gives you a high degree of control over which fields within each résumé you share with your clients.
For example, our CV reformatting software makes it easy for recruiters to:
Absolutely! In fact, our team will be happy to convert your existing template (from any format) into a file that’ll work seamlessly within our CV formatting software. Just use that file when you apply your branding to the résumés you’ve uploaded, and you’ll get perfectly consistent results every time. You’re also welcome to update your template any time you like. Simply upload candidate résumés and select your template — then our Templater tool does the rest, automatically preparing the formatted résumés for download.
Not at all! If you can attach a document to an email, then you can use Affinda’s résumé formatting software. The entire reformatting process consists of just 3 simple steps:
That’s all there is to it! And if you ever have any questions, our team is here to help.
Nope! All you’ll need is a computer with an internet connection. Our powerful machine-learning algorithm runs in the cloud, enabling you to tap into enterprise-level processing capabilities from any ordinary laptop or desktop machine. We’ll set you up with web-based access that makes it easy to upload batches of résumés, select a branded template to apply to all of them, choose which fields (if any) to remove or redact, then download the reformatted documents — just as easily as downloading an email attachment.
Our résumé reformatting automation tool works with both Word and PDF file formats — the two industry-standard formats in which the vast majority of candidates submit their CVs to recruiters. Regardless of how the initial files are formatted and structured, our résumé formatting technology immediately identifies the fields you’d like to include, and organizes them within the branded template you’ve specified. That means you’ll never have to worry about time-consuming margin adjustments or line spacing again!
Our tool enables you to upload as many as 25 résumés in a single batch. If you’re interested in automated reformatting of larger numbers of résumés, our team will be glad to talk with you about custom software solutions designed to fit your agency’s needs.
Our reformatted résumés can be used anywhere you’d use a regular Word or PDF document — makes them easy to integrate into your recruiting and pitching workflows. If you have any questions about integrating Affinda’s tools into your existing software, our support team will be happy to walk you through the details.
Résumé parsing (or CV parsing) is the process of using machine learning to identify relevant data in a resume (which might be uploaded as a Word or PDF file), and extract that data into a more consistently organized data format that’s easier to sort and search — such as an Excel spreadsheet or JSON document. Affinda’s Résumé Parser tool provides exactly this capability.
Résumé redacting also uses machine learning to recognize significant data in a text file — but instead of extracting that data for sorting and analysis, a redaction tool removes or blocks out the types of information specified by the user. For example, a recruiter might use Affinda’s Résumé Redactor tool to hide applicant details that could contribute to discrimination and hiring bias, helping promote diversity in the workplace.
Résumé templating, meanwhile, uses machine learning to differentiate between text that should or shouldn’t be included on a branded CV. The system then organizes the desired information according to a template format provided by the user, while also removing any undesired details before generating a final reformatted file.
All three of these interlocking functionalities can be highly useful to recruiters — in fact, Affinda’s CV Templater tool uses parsing and redaction as central components of its reformatting process.
We’re a passionate crew of developers, data scientists and AI engineers, on a mission to bring machine learning to the masses. We believe intelligent document processing solutions should be easy, affordable, and accessible to businesses of all sizes — so that’s exactly what we build every day.
This HR technology AI model is just one of the many applications of Affinda. Our technology can be leveraged across a range of industries and applications, to automate time consuming manual processes.
