Answers to all the questions we often get asked before people sign up
How long can my video be?
The maximum length for an intro video is two and a half minutes but one minute is long enough to introduce yourself, briefly explain what you do, and why you would be a great hire.
Remember, this is an introduction – the goal is to get the viewer to want to find out more. There are samples you can watch to help you, as well as guides and videos explaining how to structure what to say.
How long will it take me to make my Video CV?
You can create your first Video CV for fun in less than 5 minutes. You will need more time to work out what to say (we have guides to help you with this) and you should practice a few times.
The best way to get started is to jump right in so you see how simple C-Me it is to use. Then you can edit your profile and re-record your intro until you are happy. Before you know it, you will be sharing your Video CV with potential employers!
Can I attach my CV?
Yes, you can upload your CV. That way employers can easily download it at the click of a button. Just drag and drop, or click upload, at the bottom of your Profile. You can upload .pdf and .docx files.
How much does it cost to make a Video CV?

Is there a limit to how many times I can send out a Video CV?

What happens if I want to stop my Video CV from being seen?
One of the core principles of C-Me is ensuring that you, the owner of your Video CV, have total control at all times. So, you decide when to share, and when to stop sharing by deactivating your Video CV. The C-Me Help Centre explains how to do this. You can also re-activate your Video CV at any time.
Can I delete my Video CV?
Yes, you can delete your video CV at any time. The C-Me Help Centre explains how to do this. Note that this permanently deletes your Video CV from the server and it cannot be restored. FYI, to prevent your Video CV from being viewed you can deactivate instead.
