Affinda’s Resume Parser uses recent advancements in AI technology to extract CVs in 56 languages while being able to recognize and process over 100 different fields. Although younger than more established competitors, independent testing has confirmed our product as the most accurate Resume Parser on the market.
The Affinda Resume Parser is built on top of our AI Engine, VEGA, which brings to market innovations in NLP (Natural Language Processing), Transfer Learning, and Computer Vision that enable us to understand documents like a human and return structured data from resumes typically within 1 – 2 seconds.
How to use Affinda's Resume Parser?
Typically, customers will use our REST API to parse resumes. Simply post a resume to the API and we will return the extracted data in a JSON file. Resume data can be uploaded in three formats:
- File upload - upload a PDF, DOC, DOCX, TXT, RTF, HTML, PNG, JPG,
- URL - post the URL containing a resume file
- Data upload - upload resume data directly without parsing any resume file by providing a JSON-encoded string (note, this method will not impact your parsing credits)
Further information about how to use our API and client libraries is available here.
Users can also upload documents, extract data, and export results from the Affinda web app.

Title, first name, middle name, last name, address, contact phone, email, websites, date of birth, headshot, LinkedIn profile
