Importing an existing resume from your computer

If you have a DOCX or PDF resume that you have already written, you can import this to VisualCV to save time editing it. 

You can import content when you create a new VisualCV resume, or to a VisualCV resume you have already created

To import an existing resume to a new VisualCV resume:

1. On the Resume Dashboard, click Create New. This will open a menu with options for creating a resume.2. Select Import resume/CV from the menu. This will open a file uploader.

3. Use the uploader to import your existing file from your computer.

4. Click Upload.

The content from your document will now be parsed and added to your VisualCV resume. 

To import content to an VisualCV resume you already created:

1. Open the Import resume/CV tab in the left side menu. This will open a file uploader.

2. Use the uploader to find the existing file on your computer

3. Click Import resume/CV

Please note that additional editing will be required, so be sure to check each section to make sure all your content is there. If content is missing, copy and paste it from the original document or reach out to our support team.
