@syam3526 as others have suggested, you have to find how you best learn efficiently. There are many ways to learn from. Another way you might learn quickly from is having a mentor who already does analytics.
@mallaakash what kind of resumes are you extracting from? PDFs? LinkedIn? Paper resumes?
These two websites seem promising on cataloging plotting in R and Python. There's some glitches while I was on them just now, but that might be from the traffic they're getting.

@mallaakash if you've got them into plain text files, then what you'll probably want to do is make sure that you've got some standard format of each of the resumes i.e. each has a name, work experience section, etc.

That way, it'll be easier to search through. Then you can just use regular expressions to search for what you want and exploit the inherent structure you've put into it.

Another thing to consider (might take some more effort) is to format them into JSON files according to this schema. That way, it'll be easier to consider what you might want to look for and then it'll be easier to search through. Good luck!
