Upload Word Doc and Insert into MySQL Database?

Some of the big job websites (like Indeed and Smart Recruiter) have a slick feature where people upload their resume in Word format, the information is magically parsed and automatically populates their online profile. I assume the info is being saved in a database. Does anyone know how this is done or is there an application to do this? The website I'm working on is php/mysql.
