Have you ever seen the perfect job opportunity on your smartphone and wanted to apply for it there and then, but then realised that your CV was on your laptop at home?
It’s a nightmare situation that we’ve all been in at some point!!!
Many companies still haven’t optimised their websites for mobile users, but fear not, there is a way that you can save your CV (or any other important files) onto your phone, for easy access when you need them most.
Create and save your CV as a .pdf file. This is easily done on any word processing software, such as Microsoft Word. When you save the file, just change the “save as type” to “PDF (*.pdf)”.
That’s the first bit done – nice and easy 🙂
All you have to do now is get it onto your phone, which is completed in 3 steps:
- Open iTunes
- Open the folder where your CV (.pdf) file is located
- “Drag and drop the file” into the “Books” option in your iTunes library. (highlighted below)
When the file is copied into your books, right click and then click on “Get info”.
Change the name to something appropriate and change the “author” to your own name.
That’s it, you’ve done the hard work!
Sync your iphone (remembering to also make sure that it is syncing your “books”) and your CV will now be acccesible for whenever you might need it.
You can attach it to applications, send it on email, or even print it straight from your phone (with the correct lead of course!) You’ll also have a handy copy, just in case your next interviewer
forgets their copy!!!

Send your CV to your own email address and then save it straight onto your phone! Easy!!!
(There may be occasion where memory doesn’t permit this – if this is the case, get a new memory card, or delete something…)
It’s all fairly straightforward when you know how and hopefully this will have saved you having to pay through the nose for an app, which will just do the same job!!
