Easiest Way To Get Your CV Noticed Online

It is a mandatory requirement for any job seeker to have in their possession a Curriculum Vitae (CV) while applying for a job opportunity. The 21st Century has made it easier for people to send their CVs to companies online.

All one requires is a well-tailored CV according to the position you would like to apply for and a cover letter, in case companies want you to go the extra mile.

However editing and downloading your CV to attach via email and sending it is not only a tedious process but also one that ends up filling storage space on your device.

A small tip, there is no app needed to scan a Flowcode as anyone can scan a Flowcode using just the camera on their smartphone. 

Aim your camera at the code and tap the notification banner when it appears (this step is not necessary for newer phones). If you are farther away from the code, you may need to zoom in a bit to focus on the code.

If the code does not scan when you hover your phone over it, it might be due to the type of phone you're using. 

If you have a Samsung device, try holding down the home button where a talking bar should appear, and to the left is a QR code icon. Press this icon and Google lens will appear and scan the code. 

If your phone does not have Google lens activated, open the quick settings panel and enable QR code scanning. With that done, you should be able to scan the Flowcode.
