a) You may try to find an anonymized resume dataset in the openbase of Kaggle datasets

b) You may do some web scraping on professional social networks like LinkedIn (take the description of a profile as resume, and the LinkedIn skills as supervised training set) to build your own sample database (do not forget to anonymize it).

Hope this helps!

  • $\begingroup$ I think as Taamer has suggested, you should start exploring the sites like Kaggle, attached a link too for extracting the training dataset. Link-1 Web scrapping using professional networks like LinkedIn, Hire etc. This is just an extension for Tammers answer. $\endgroup$ – Toros91 Nov 27 '17 at 8:33
