CVFlash is an online platform for creating professional-looking DOC and PDF format CVs, using preset templates, that can then be sent instantly, at any time, to employers worldwide, via SMS. That means no internet connection is required to send your CVs.
First, you have to sign up with your email and the number you want to send CVs with. Next, you’re given a choice between creating your CV from scratch or starting off with your LinkedIn profile.
Then you can fill up missing sections of your CV (add more sections if you want), draft your Cover Letter and choose from a list of preset styling templates. You can email your saved CV from here but where it gets interesting is, you can also send your CV when you’re away from the internet. Just send an SMS from your registered number – “ejob [employer’s email address]” – to 35811. For example, ejob firstname.lastname@example.org to 35811.
You can create as many CVs as you want for free, but you have to set one as default for when you send CVs via SMS. While creating and sending CVs is absolutely free, having your CVs downloaded by employers is not. To enable that functionality, you need to purchase credits. Everyone gets 1 free credit on sign up, which happens to be the exact amount you’re charged each time an employer downloads your CV.
CVFlash was founded and developed by Somto Ifezue, with backing from Angel Investors.
