I am trying to extract information from resumes. I tried the pdfminer for the text extraction. But I need to extract the contents from a resume with respect to its title.

For example: I will be giving my educational details under a title EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND, so I have to extract the content topic wise.

Is it possible to extract like that?

What will be the process behind that?

Is it possible to approach the problem in a segmentation manner.


pyresparser is useful for extracting information from resumes. I believe this should work in your case.

Check out the more details on the same here https://pypi.org/project/pyresparser/

Let me know if it works!

  • $\begingroup$ I have checked this also. Its good package but sometimes it fails to extract name etc but its good in extracting mob, email,skills etc $\endgroup$

Here are a list of tools you can look into:

  1. https://tika.apache.org/
  2. https://jsoup.org/
  3. https://poi.apache.org/

This was a neat read detailing the steps. The author was doing something similar to what you are trying.
