When you upload your CV it is scanned and skills and experience are taken from it to build your Profile. Your Profile gives you the chance to add additional relevant skills that would strengthen your application. This helps you stand out and lets the recruiter know how your skill set matches that of the position applied to. You can also check the skills specified in the job description to ensure that you have included all the relevant skills in your profile. You can refer to our help doc Improving my chance of getting noticed for further information.

To add skills to your Profile do the following:

  • Log in to your account here 
  • Click on the Profile tab to the left: 

  • Click on the work experience. Add the required skills within the description section either as a sentence (Elevate will pick up the key skills from this) or as a list of skills used that may be relevant to the positions you are applying to.
  • Click Save in the top right corner.
