Is there a way to get a resume in text format?

Post by jaybird »

When making an Rest API call to the candidate entity the "description" field returns resume data in HTML format. Unfortunately HTML format cannot be consumed in our target system. Is there a way to extract a candidate resume from Bullhorn in text format?

The content in the description field is determined by the format of the resume when added, meaning if there was HTML in the resume when added to the record it will contain HTML when exported. There is no way to pull only plain text from the description field other than manual copy/paste into a simple text editor.
