3. (PDF) images are Evil

Yep.

The platform is not able to extract text from an image...yet.

As a result, your DNA will be empty and no matches will show up.

So if your CV is in a PDF format (which is cool), double check it and see if you can, for example select the text. If not, then it’s probably an image.

4. You’re on Mobile? Use your voice!

That’s a great and easy way to quickly fill-up your profile with what’s important.

5. Feeling lazy? A very few keywords can save your day.

In association with the voice feature, there are some keyword importants to get job matches:

  • Location
  • Education
  • Work Experience
  • Skills
  • Language

6. No matches? What the…

Don’t panic…

Make sure your DNA profile is populated with keywords.

If not try to edit your DNA (see 1) or upload a complete CV (PDF - remember: not an image -, doc, voice or text).

If you still get that 0 match, contact us.

7. “Cover up that number, which I can't endure to look on”

You got job matches (congrats!) but the match percentage is low.

Don’t worry, the percentage is calculated on all the keywords found in an job offer, without distinction. There is still a great chance that your profile matches the job offer listed in your profile.
