Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Recruiting >> Candidates >> Search a Candidate

2. Click the Pencil icon beside the Resume to edit the Resume.

3. Choose file and upload the Resume.

4. You will notice that the Country Field is populated as United Kingdom or United States.


1. The Resume contains a fake name for the Address/Location.

Illustrative Example:

Daiana Sanchez

Mobile: +91 000000


Address: xxxxxxxxxx

2. The content of the Address from the Resume was misspelled.

Illustrative Example:

Address: 1403 Bangna-Trad Rd., Samutprakarn 12345

Mobile Phone: 063 12345678

The City Samutprakarn was misspelled. The correct spelling is Samut Prakan.


The Resume Parsing is using a third party service provider called Text Kernel which is responsible for matching information from the Resume/CV to its Database.

Its solution has the capability to understand the context and search for information from their knowledge servers.

1. Ensure that the information of the Address or Location must be a real information as it will be used as the keyword to be matched from the database of Text Kernel. If the usage of a fake name has been detected, this makes difficult to determine the right location.

2. Ensure that the provided information of the Address or Location must spelled correctly.

If there are no Data from the Address of the Resume, Country field will be blank.
