Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I’m a job seeker, how do I create my CVid? Download the CVid mobile app on iOS or Android mobile devices only. Once you’ve downloaded the app, it will take you through the simple steps to create your CVid.

What devices can I create my CVid on? The CVid app is now available for iOS or Android phones, and iOS tablets. Currently, CVid is not available on desktop and on Android tablet, but look out for these coming soon!

How do I know if I have been shortlisted for a job? As soon as you create your CVid, it will be sent to your prospective employer or recruitment agent. If they want to continue the conversation, you will be emailed directly. It is up to the recruiter or employer’s discretion to contact you back after you have sent your CVid.

How do I upload my CV or resumé using the CVid app? Your CVid application is a combination of your CVid video plus your CV. You have a few choices when it comes to attaching your CV. You can either connect using a LinkedIN account if you have one, and our app will draw your work experience, background and contact information directly from there. Please make sure it’s up-to-date if using this method. You can also choose to upload a PDF of your CV directly from the Dropbox application. If you choose neither of the above, choose the ‘upload CV’ option, and you will be sent an email on your desktop. Follow the steps on the email to attach your CV in PDF format.

How long do I have to record my CVid? Your CVid will be around 1 minute and 30 seconds in total, so each question will roughly be 30 seconds. Just follow the prompter. If you finish too late, you can easily discard your old recording and start again.
