    I’m having issues with spacing/margins/size. Whenever I print my CV, it prints on multiple pages, or the spaces are too large between sections. How do I fix this?

    Try the following steps to fix spacing/margin issues:

    1. If you are currently in the CV editor, follow the steps below to troubleshoot. If you are not, go to Documents and select the CV to edit.

    If you are still having trouble, contact us for help.

    I need to make several versions of my CV for different jobs, and the site won’t allow me to.

    Google Chrome is our most compatible browser. Please use it to log in to your account if you haven’t done so already and try again.

    On your Documents, you should see an icon over each CV thumbnail to Duplicate and then make changes.

    You can also start from scratch.

    If you are still unable to create several versions of your CV, contact us for help.

    Why can’t the recruiter/hiring manager open the email I sent with my CV?

    Did you download your CV in the format requested by the employer?

    Download and save your CV in the requested format. If unsure, double-check the job description to see if the employer requests a specific file format (PDF, DOC, DOCX, PDF, TXT, or RTF). If not, save it as a PDF, DOC or DOCX.

    Attach your saved CV to an email message and send it to yourself to test it.

    If it works, the employer should be able to open the document when attached to an email.

    If the problem continues, contact us.

    Payment information

    How do I check for MyPerfectCV transactions on my billing statement?

    Look for this text: “MYPERFECTCV.CO.UK or BLD*MYPERFECTCV.CO.UK” on your
    billing statement.

    Why is my payment attempt unsuccessful, and the site is requesting another card/method?
