A Few-shot Approach to Resume Information Extraction via Prompts

Chengguang Gan, Tatsunori Mori

Prompt learning has been shown to achieve near-Fine-tune performance in most text classification tasks with very few training examples. It is advantageous for NLP tasks where samples are scarce. In this paper, we attempt to apply it to a practical scenario, i.e resume information extraction, and to enhance the existing method to make it more applicable to the resume information extraction task. In particular, we created multiple sets of manual templates and verbalizers based on the textual characteristics of resumes. In addition, we compared the performance of Masked Language Model (MLM) pre-training language models (PLMs) and Seq2Seq PLMs on this task. Furthermore, we improve the design method of verbalizer for Knowledgeable Prompt-tuning in order to provide a example for the design of Prompt templates and verbalizer for other application-based NLP tasks. In this case, we propose the concept of Manual Knowledgeable Verbalizer(MKV). A rule for constructing the Knowledgeable Verbalizer corresponding to the application scenario. Experiments demonstrate that templates and verbalizers designed based on our rules are more effective and robust than existing manual templates and automatically generated prompt methods. It is established that the currently available automatic prompt methods cannot compete with manually designed prompt templates for some realistic task scenarios. The results of the final confusion matrix indicate that our proposed MKV significantly resolved the sample imbalance issue.
