Project Description

This is the 4th time we have had to post this project.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND DO NOT BID UNLESS YOU ARE CAPABLE OF COMPLETING PROJECT

We need a script that will allow users to upload their CV/Resume and extract the information from it and write it to a simple pipe delimited datafile or similar that we can then work with. It is perhaps impossible for this to work with every CV but we want it to work for 90%+. The information extracted will include things like:
Name:
Address:
Phone:
Email:
Employment History ((company name, job position, years, location) x 2-4)
Education History (similar to above)

Extracting the name, email & phone number is easy. Since the CVs will all be in different, various formats, the other data is a little more difficult and we do not expect it to work more than 90% of the time. Users will upload their resume/CV and then fill in the blanks manually.

This is not impossible at all. Examples of what we want can be found at

The website is hosted on a *nix server with limited Perl modules installed (Cam-PDF is installed). If it can be done in alternative, compatible languages, we will be happy with that.
