CareerJunction has launched a new technology set to transform the face of online recruitment in South Africa.  CV2Resume converts CV’s from a variety of formats into a professional online resume in a matter of minutes, giving career seekers access to thousands of jobs online.

CV2Resume integrates a sophisticated resume parsing technology into the CareerJunction website – the leading career website in South Africa. This specific technology is available in South Africa for the first time ever, giving career seekers the ability to import their original CV in a Word, PDF or any text based format and the new artificial intelligence tagging technology will read and extract information from the resume, converting it with the highest precision into the CareerJunction database configuration.

Importing the CV into the CareerJunction resume takes a few seconds, while verifying the information only takes a matter of minutes. The benefit to career seekers is that they now have an option of either building an online resume, which is important if they do not have one already crafted, or alternatively they now have the opportunity to simply import their Word or PDF CVs on to CareerJunction and the CV2Resume process will automatically populate a new Resume4Life.

The CareerJunction Resume4Life has become the South African online standard for building a concise resume recognised by over 700 agencies in South Africa as well as many employers. The Resume4Life is online and treated with total confidentiality.

“The advantage of an online resume is that it is matched more accurately in resume searches, giving career seekers a much greater chance of being found by recruiters who specialise in matching people to job specifications,” explains Kris Jarzebowski, MD and founder of CareerJunction. Once a career seeker has completed their online Resume4Life, they have the chance to select if they would like to be searchable by recruiters in candidate searches. “This ensures that their confidentiality is always assured and maintained,” Jarzebowski adds.

The CareerJunction Resume4Life is a widely accepted format that is preferred by local and international Recruiters. It has been used by recruiters and career seekers alike on the CareerJunction website for more than years.

CareerJunction’s resume technology has the ability to read, understand, and analyse unstructured resumes and job descriptions in most major document formats and extracts more than one hundred facts with the highest accuracy in the industry, translates skills to a standardised dictionary, and delivers the output mapped to the CareerJunction Resume4Life format. The result of this is a far more accurate engine with the advanced capabilities of identifying candidate data.

“This makes it one of the most reliable CV parsing technologies available,” explains Jarzebowski.
