With the development of considerable new technologies, many companies are now embarking on online recruitment. It is indeed a more practical and also a more effective way of measuring and assessing the qualities and skills of candidates. Considering this, this implies above all the creation of an online CV, a task that could be easy for many people, but which can be difficult for some. This is why in this article we give you some tips for creating and launching an online CV.
How to create an online CV?
There are two main methods to create your CV online. To start, you can create the CV from your computer and then publish it in PDF or Word format on the internet. However, it is also possible to create it by simply filling out your CVs with pre-established designs on the Web. This second method is particularly attractive due to its simplicity. However, it might cause some customization issues. Indeed, as companies are always looking for people with a creative spirit, an original CV will certainly be more effective. Furthermore, it is good to know that some online cv builder sites offer customization options when it comes to images, fonts, background, colors, and many more.
Moreover, if you still want to create your CV on your computer before publishing it on the internet, the procedure to follow is the classic one. In other words, you have to create the different sections yourself and in the established order.
How to post your CV on the internet?
Posting a CV on the internet is not difficult. In fact, you won’t have to do anything other than upload the document. However, before all that, you need to find a platform to do it first. But how? Typically, job boards are the ones that offer to post your resume on their site for companies to see. However, it is also possible to apply directly on the company’s website by sending your CV by email or in a specially designed field. It’s up to you to choose what looks good to you.
But you should be careful because if you have filled your CV in a pre-established design as we already said above, normally you will not need to distribute it anymore. Once your CV is well filled out, all you have to do is click on a button (share or broadcast) to post it online. But in this case, the CV created will only be published on the platform with which you designed it. In other words, you will not be able to launch it on another platform. If this is your goal, the best would be to opt for the first option and create your CV in the office before posting it on all the job platforms you want.
