I've just embarked on a project to recommend similar candidates to employers for a website that offers employers the ability to search its CV database.
My background is in engineering research on biomedical images - from simple predefined feature extraction to CNNs.
I'm about to start with a simple bag of words approach standardised by the frequency of appearance and see where that gets me.
Has anyone done anything similar before and has suggestions for which algorithms might give good results?
The data is very well structured, separated into seperate sections for each previous employment etc.
