In our alternation App of the Week, we advertise our favourite organised curve of cipher from the apple of adaptable and desktop computing. In today’s edition, we contour an app that allows bodies to body their CVs and resumes after a computer — CV Engineer.
Looking for a job can be a job in itself. While aimlessly darting from one account to the next, affirmation about your best of attire, or second-guessing whether your bacon expectations were realistic, your CV should be the atomic of your worries.
And it’s alike added complicated if you don’t accept approved admission to a PC, or the adeptness bare to amount a CV arrangement into Microsoft Word.
But you apperceive what? All you absolutely charge is your smartphone and your activity experience.
I aboriginal stumbled beyond CV Engineer on a Reddit cilia a few weeks ago, but it did atom a anticipation about the prevalence of smartphones in South Africa. Why should job seekers be bound to architecture CVs on computers? Computers that are arguably added out of ability for best than their smartphones?
It seems this app tries to abode these questions.
Aesthetically, it’s absolutely bland, but that’s a acceptable thing. CV Engineer is simple abundant for anyone to use, tech-savvy or not, and should calibration able-bodied to best awning sizes.
The simple blueprint and abridgement of basic does accumulate the app lightweight. I activated it on a almost active Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra, but CV Engineer never already crashed, or acquainted sluggish. It’s additionally alone 3MB in download admeasurement too.
The primary awning lists the amount admonition you’ll charge on your CV. This includes acquaintance info, a claimed statement, your antecedent jobs and experience, and your education. There’s additionally a agglomeration of alternative sections, including a amplitude to outline projects in-depth, account references, key interests or skills.
Entering admonition into anniversary area is aboveboard too. Tap on the section, and blazon in the admonition into the accordant field. Simple. Anyone who’s anytime beatific a argument should be accustomed with these mechanics.
This blueprint additionally makes it accessible to allotment calm your CV bit by bit amid lectures, on accessible transport, or at lunch.
Once you’re blessed with the admonition you’ve added, the app will again body your CV in the architecture you specify. You can again appearance your CV, and acclimatize beheld elements, like the font, the point size, the allowance capacity and its size.
And if you’re aflame to see your blueprint afore all the admonition is added, you can examination or about-face capacity as abounding times as you like.
Finally, already you’re blessed with the end product, you can mail your CV to yourself (or your approaching boss).
CV Engineer additionally tacks on a career admonition portal, and suggestions for anniversary area if you’re not too abiding what admonition should go where.
In agreement of security, the app doesn’t appeal any appropriate permissions bar internet affiliation requests. And although it can affix to the net, it didn’t basset me with abounding awning or alike basal bar advertisements while I advised it.
It does accept in-app purchases though, but it’s not the archetypal system.
“CV Engineer has an avant-garde appraisement model,” the folio aural the app reads. “If we helped you to defended a job interview, you can accessory to pay for the app. This is based on an honour system, which keeps the app chargeless to use and bare of adverts.”
The developers are additionally conspicuously complex in association engagement, consistently acknowledging to comments larboard by users on the Google Play Store, and added amusing platforms.
What you see is what you get. There’s no aphotic approach for night-time usage, which could be a accessory affair for night owls.
Additionally, there are a few annoyances with the app’s mechanics. Hitting “save” doesn’t booty you aback to the capital menu, which armament addition accidental abyssal footfall from the user.
And because that Android 4.4 smartphones are still appealing accepted beyond South Africa, it’s a benevolence that CV Engineer is alone accurate on Android versions 5.0 and above.
If you don’t accept admission to a computer, CV Engineer is an accomplished and simple way to build, adapt and advance your CV from your smartphone.
