In the Resource Management section, Zbizlink provides the following functionalities:
7.1. Resume Parser
Resume Parsing, also known as CV Parsing, Resume Extraction or CV Extraction, is the conversion of a free-form resume/CV document into structured information for storage, reporting and system integration. Zbizlink will quickly process resumes and CVs in real-time – so you don’t have to — with our Resume Parser feature.
Note: Resumes/CVs must be in Microsoft Word format before uploading.

6. Lastly, select “Apply” to extract the data from the resume.
7.2. Manual Entries
Sometimes team members may not have an updated resume. Sometimes team members may want to tailor their resume to the Opportunity. Zbizlink will support the resume building process no matter the need.
Add information manually for a complete resume. Manual entries allow you and your team to have full visibility and control of each resume section. Edit resumes as much or as little as needed to complete your winning proposal.
Figure 7.2. Build Resource Profiles Manually
In the “Resume Parser” tab, click “No” when asked “Do you have an employee resume?” to move to the “Basic Information” tab.
Recommendation: Complete as much information as possible/needed on each tab to streamline subsequent tab completion.
7.2.1. Basic Information
Admin Users can enter the Resource’s information in the “Basic Information” tab including email address. Once information is entered into the tool and submitted, the Resource will receive a confirmation email for Zbizlink registration.

Once a Resource selects “Click Here”, he/she will be redirected to your organization’s Zbizlink dashboard. Resources can create a new password for their individual use.
Note: Resources will have limited access to the account unless Admin Users grant the Resource administrative or user group permissions. Refer to Section 6.4: Assigning Admin Users – Section 6.5: Managing User Groups for more information.
Record up-to-date data for completed, or in-progress education history in the “Employee Education” tab.
