Why do you keep making your life harder by creating CVs from scratch when there is so much help available?

CV apps have made it easier than ever to create a professional document that includes all the information employers want to see. Also, with all of the modern and beautifully designed templates available, who wouldn’t want to use an app to increase their chances of getting a job?

Here are 10 of the best:

1. Curriculum Vitae

Curriculum Vitae is an easy and straightforward app to use. It has a simple menu that helps you navigate the platform effectively and do exactly what it says on the tin – create a stylish CV in minutes. It allows you to generate a CV with different sections including personal details, profile, work experience, education, languages and hobbies. You have the ability to store it as a PDF on your SD card and then print it out if the employer asks for a hard copy.

Availability: Android

Price: Free

2. My-CV

My-CV provides you with the option to create your CV from scratch or choose from a range of PDF templates. Once you provide all the information needed for the different sections, you can sync with your Dropbox account and print it from there. What’s rather unique about this app is the fact that you get a ready-made portfolio web page and a personal web address for employers to check out. It also allows you to connect with other professionals from all around the world.

Availability: iOS

Price: Free

3. My CV Maker

With this app you can open previously created CVs, and edit or modify any section at any time. All you need to do is fill in the blanks providing the necessary information, save it as PDF and you are good to go. What’s great about this app is that it allows you to transfer a picture from your camera or gallery, which is a convenient tool if you want to add some visual material to draw attention to your projects and achievements.

Availability: Android

Price: Free

4. CV Mobile

CV mobile claims to be the most advanced app of its kind on the App Store. It’s difficult to argue with this considering that it has a modern and simple design that allows you to create a project quickly and easily. It allows you to duplicate and edit your CVs for different job applications and import data from your LinkedIn profile. There are a range of customisation options with different styles and formats, and you can save and send in PDF, JPG or RTF formats.

Availability: iOS

Price: £2.99

5. Gro Your CV

Gro Your CV is different from any other app on this list as it offers an easy way to translate social action into your CV. Essentially it gives out two main options. If you have volunteering experience, you can translate it into skills that employers understand and value. If you have never been a volunteer but want to try it out, this app can also help you out by offering a service that allows you to search for these types of opportunities.

Availability: iOS

Price: Free

6. Job CV Maker

Job CV Maker is the easiest tool to use if you want to build a creative CV in minutes. It includes some sample templates that you can check out to take a look at before you are ready to start working. When you finish, you can save it in PDF format and then share it by Bluetooth, email, WhatsApp or any other social sharing platform. The app also provides you the opportunity to add work-related projects that you have completed while in education or work, to impress employers.

Availability:  Android

Price: Free

7. CV Library

If you are in any way familiar with CV library, then you probably already know that they have created an app to help you search and apply to the over 140,000 jobs available on the platform. With this award-winning app, you get job alerts and can save searches, jobs, cover letters and upload your CV to Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive and create a personal profile that can help you promote yourself effectively.

Availability: iOS and Android

Price: Free

8. CV Builder

CV Builder has a simple user interface that’s easy to navigate and allows you to choose from a range of different formats and samples which you can check at any point. It allows you to edit your contact information, career objective, experience, education, skills and reference sections. After you finish writing you can save it as a PDF and send it to your email.

Availability: Android

Price: Free

9. CV Generator

If you need a CV and you want it quick, this app is for you. CV Generator allows you to import information from Facebook or LinkedIn and fill most of the details you need in automatically. It also offers a unique management tool that allows you to give a title to each CV you make. To help you out it provides an info page with guidelines on how to use it effectively.

Availability: iOS

Price: £0.99

10. Ultimate CV

This app allows you to create CVs and cover letters, which can be saved as PDF files and then emailed, printed or even stored in iCloud. Adding information on your CV can be done with a form or by importing it from Facebook and LinkedIn. If you are filling out the form on an iPad, the app simplifies the process using Form Filler which makes suggestions of words and sentences. The app also offers the possibility of including links to different job sites and additional file conversion options.

Availability: iOS

Price: £2.99

Even though there are plenty of other things you would rather be doing you need to dedicate some time to create a good-looking CV even with all of the apps available.
