Resume Capture Tool

A resume capture tool generally allows a recruiter to proactively import or “inhale” individual resume files into formats such as a spreadsheet or XML file, for example. This resume scanning software tends to be more prevalently used among agency recruiters, staffing firms and headhunters, rather than corporate talent acquisition professionals, as it allows these individuals to scan information directly from search results on job boards and networking sites. This type of candidate-oriented activity is usually done prior to an applicant expressing specific interest in a certain job with an organization by completing an employment application via a careers portal.

For a more job-oriented approach to recruiting, an applicant tracking system provides an electronic job portal by which individuals may search open positions and express interest by completing an electronic application.
