Upload Resume

Uploading your Resume

To upload your resume directly from Resume Designer, your document must be stored in iCloud. iOS 9 added support for file uploads to Safari, the iPhone and iPad's built-in browser. This means you can use Safari and go to the site you want to upload to, find the Upload button, and Safari will ask you to locate the file you want to upload.  Choose iCloud Drive, then Resume Designer, and you'll find both your resume and your cover letter there.

Uploading with Dropbox

Some sites, notably monster.com, will not let you upload a resume from your phone directly. They make incorrect assumptions that a phone web browser cannot upload files. Usually these sites will let you pick a file in Dropbox, so you can upload your document this way.

Install the free Dropbox app from the App Store, and log in or create an account if you haven't already used it. Then back in Resume Designer, open your resume and then choose "Open In..." from the menu button (at the bottom of the list of sections).  Pick Dropbox as the app to Open In... and this will copy your file into Dropbox. Once it's there, you can go back to the job site and pick the file from the Dropbox folder.

Support for Other Sites

If you need to upload your resume to a website that isn't supported, an option would be to email the document to yourself, and then use a Mac or Windows computer to upload the file to the website. This isn't a great solution, but it is the most reliable option.
