Here’s how to make a CV on your phone:
1. Download a word-processing app
If you don’t have a word-processing app on your phone already, we suggest using either Google Docs (free) or Microsoft Word (paid). Here’s where you can download them:
2. Write your CV on the app
Include your name and contact information in your CV’s header, followed by sections for your personal statement, work experience, education, skills, and hobbies & interests. To simplify the process, download a CV template and fill in your information.
3. Proofread your CV
After you make your CV on your phone, re-check it for errors. Typing on a small screen is difficult, so be extra careful when you proofread your CV.
4. Ensure your filename is clear and professional
To be sure the recruiter opens your CV, give it a clear filename (e.g., Your-Name-CV). If you’re unsure how to change your filename, follow these instructions:
