As per my understanding (and Note: 247064.1) simple Keyword searches can be performed in iRecruitment if oracle Text is installed. However searching for Keywords within resumes is not possible using Oracle Text and is possible ONLY if Resume Parsing is enabled via a third party (non-oracle) service provider.
Can you please let me know if my understanding is correct and if not provide further inputs on this.
Got this confirmation from Oracle via SR:
Resume searching is independent of resume parsing and not required to search resumes.
Oracle Text is the text engine that allows you to search documents using content-based queries. Oracle Text allows you to upload documents, search documents, parse resumes, etc.
Hence to conclude - Installation of Oracle Text will allow Keyword Searches on resumes.
