CV screening with AI Builder + Power Automate + Teams

Hi there! I am absolutely obsessed with AI Builder and its capabilities to read and extract information from various types of documents. Recently, I discovered a new use case for the tool - creating an AI model to read CV information about job candidates! With its "Extract Custom Information from Documents" feature, AI Builder is making it easier to gather valuable insights from resumes, cover letters, and other candidate materials. This is not only saving me time and reducing manual data entry but also providing me with a more comprehensive understanding of each candidate's experience and qualifications. I'm excited to share my experience with AI Builder and show you how powerful this tool can be. Let's dive in!


NOTE: You will have to work a bit harder than the rest of the models as this is a custom one, and you will train it.


Create the model

Log into and select AI Builder, then Explore You will see some options there. In this post, we will use: Extract custom information from documents. This is what Power Apps page says about the model:

Easily build, train and publish your own custom model to extract information such as text, table, number, handwritten text, checkbox, and more. Custom models are trained with your own data, so they're tailored to your documents.

Select the box, these tabs will open, select Get started.

Select the type of documents your model will process, it will be unstructured documents.

Choose information to extract, and type the fields you want the model to find. You will need to select and enter the name of every field you want to add.

First, select the type of field:

And second, enter the name of the field:

Add a collection of documents, this will be what you will use to train your model.

Then you will need to tag the documents with the fields you just created, see the recording below. Do it with all the documents from your collection. This is why is so important to keep the fields and documents simple.

Once everything is completed, Power Apps will show you a Model Summary:

If you are happy with it, select Train. This can take up to 1 hour.
