We have 10,000+ MS Word documents which are resumes of candidates which we want to develop an application to index, organise and search documents in a database application.
The application can be destop based or webbased but will be a private database. Each record (resume) will have the following fields associated with it -
Candidate name (text box - entered by user)
Candidate Job Title (text box - entered by user)
Candidate Organisation (select from a list)
Location (Select from a list)
Industry (Select from a list)
Function (Select from a list based on Industry)
Specialisation (Select from list based on Function)
Level (Select from list)
The items that will be selected from a list will be defined by the user.
We would like to batch convert the documents into a different format - e.g. html, xml or txt - we want to do this to reduce the memory/space required and searching would be easier/faster. We would like to be able to update or make changes to the resume text in the database and/or add notes to it.
We would need to view or preview the resumes in a yahoo-like directory
