Please take note:

The way our system works is, when a candidate applies for a job, the recruiter is emailed a link to view their online resume. We do not have the option to upload a file. This system works  because it also enables the recruiter to keep track and manage applications more effectively. They can create bookmarks and contact candidates via private message. We also find that employers prefer this method for various reasons. If the recruiter is interested in taking it further they will contact the candidate directly and request CV and supporting documents. This method also helps to protect you as a job seeker.
