The Profile

The profile page is found under Home in the menu. Under Home, you will see a tab called Profile.

Blocks that are included in the profile:


  • Presentation

  • Work Experience

  • Skills

  • Other Skills

  • References

  • Courses and Certifications

  • Employers

  • Education

  • Languages

  • Commitments & Publications


Switch between the blocks by clicking on 'table of content'

The profile is the basis for your information in Cinode, the "master data" for your account. However, information can also be added and edited from the CV. CVs can be differentiated depending on projects, but the base data will still be found in the profile.

When creating a new CV, the information from the profile will be added to the new CV. Then you can specify the CV to suit the assignment you apply for and choose what information should be visible or not by toggling on and off.

Below is information about each block and how to add information to these blocks.


Import your CV to get started

You can fill in your profile by importing your CV to the profile or by manually typing the information in every block.

Click " Import a CV" in the right corner to import your CV.

Once you have uploaded the CV to the profile, you can check your profile for adjustments like line breaks and dates.

The import function in Cinode will let you create a profile in seconds regardless if it's an employee, candidate, or subcontractor. This function means you can easily upload a resume into Cinode and start working with the data immediately.

NOTE: You can only use this Import function if the resume and profile in Cinode are empty or if only the skills block is filled in from before. This is regardless of language.

Things to have in mind to successfully upload a resume:

  • Avoid a summary side column (skills by category)- the CV import algorithm tends to merge the text in two columns into one line.

  • Note that if you have stated employer in you CV it can end up under Projects and Assignment.

  • Highlighted projects can not be separated from other projects - risk for doublets

The machine reader function is brilliant and saves a lot of time but does not always capture all information accurately or place it correctly. After the import, make sure to go through the content and make corrections and put in extra information if needed.

Do you want to redo the uploaded CV? - That's possible

With some small changes in the CV, for instance, set the information in one column and have distinct headlines. By doing this, you can make the content more comprehensible for the machine reader.

First, remove the profile, then try again. You can redo it as many times as you need/want. If you have the authority to edit a profile, you can also delete it.

  • Go to the profile and click on the tab Profile

  • Click on the danger zone and remove

How to edit the Profile?

Open the field that you want to edit by clicking on the pen. Edit the new information and click save.

If you can not see the save buttons, no changes have been made.

Presentation: Under the block, the presentation is where you will fill out a title and descriptive text. Remember that it needs to appeal to a client, so try to make it as sellable as possible. This will later be used as a foundation when you create resumes.

You can summarize your personal and professional qualities in this block, although personal qualities will not be shown in the standard resumes. Your organization will instruct you to fill out your personal qualities if necessary.

Project & Assignments: Add your earlier assignments and/or projects by clicking on '+' or edit an existing assignment by opening' the assignment in question. Earlier employment should be summarized as one or several assignments.

For every assignment, you must add a description (tasks, responsibilities, and results). Tag a few keywords or skills related to the assignment (one at a time). A keyword can, for example, be industries, roles, tools, techniques, etc. When you start adding skills you will be given suggestions, use these. If a keyword is missing, you can add it, but be accurate about spelling.

Skills: All added competencies from assignments are listed under the Skills block. If you miss a skill, you can add it manually using the button '+.' Rate your competence level between 1 and 5. For level definitions, click on the info symbol next to 'level.'

You can mark your favorite skills using the star symbol to the right. This will allow you to find more relevant projects based on your interests.

Other skills: Add, for example, a Driver's license and Military Service.

References: Add references to gather all important information in one place.

Courses and certifications: Add your courses and certifications. Separate University Courses should be added here.

Employers: Roles within employment are registered as assignments under Projects and assignments. Just list your former Employers here.

Education: Add your education.

Languages: Add languages and levels.

Commitments and publications: Add for example board memberships, publications, and other relevant commitments.

Profile Translations

To switch languages, click on the preferred language under Translations. You can also add a new language by clicking +, right next to Translations.

If you switch to a language where you have not added a translation, you will see the warning shown below. The content needs to be translated into the chosen profile language.

When translating a skill in the profile, you can use synonyms to find a translation.πŸ‘‡πŸΌ
