What you should probably do is add the different fields you want to search for as web controls (textboxes, dropdowns, etc). So the user would upload the document, then fill out a questionaire. You can keep the file they uploaded attached to the questionaire
answers in a database, then just search based on those fields.

how data can be extracted from word or pdf files and on the basis of data extraction only those cv's will be selected that will be matched with search string

You don't have to display the questionaire to the employers, only to the people uploading their resumes.
The problem with trying to scan pdf/word documents for information like that is there isn't 1 template to go off of. Everyone writes different so it would be impossible to code for every single difference in people's writing styles.
If you have a form that allows them to upload their document, with a couple quick questions such as Years Experience, Programming Languages, Past Employer, etc., then write those fields to the database, it would be a lot easier to search. It will also save
you a lot of time and headaches than trying to come up with a solution that scans pdf/word documents.

Real simple. Just assign the CV and the questionaire answers the same identity ID. That way, you can cross reference if you decide to put them in separate tables. You could also keep all the questionaire answers and the file path to the CV on the same database
record. When the employers search and get a hit, you already have the row ID of what they were searching for.
