Hi.

I'm assuming that you have your CV in a separate folder in My Documents or similar location.

Right click on that folder and left click on SEND TO/Compressed (zipped) Folder. A new zipped folder icon should appear somewhere near your original. Compose your email and click on ATTACH A FILE. Browse to your new folder, highlight it and click OPEN, and it will go into your email. Depending on the size, this can take a while so wait before you SEND it.

Emails will only accept a limited size file (GMail is 20 MB) so check that for yours. It is a slow process for a larger file so be aware of that.

Good luck with the job hunting.

It may be that you need to download the file, complete it, and then upload it. It might help if you could copy and paste the instructions provided by the site in a reply, or provide a link to one of the sites.
Cheers,
John

it's just your everyday job search website. they list jobs, then if you see one you want to apply for you fill in some details and click on the upload c.v part to add your c.v
think the probs once i've created c.v using microsoft works i dont know how to save it, as when i saved it if i try to look at the c.v it starts the prog i made it with 1st rather than just showing me the c.v as a document.

Not sure what your problem is, but try this.

When you have your document the way you want it, click FILE/SAVE AS. Give it a name and save it as a .txt file in the location you want.
(To look at the document, right click on it and choose OPEN WITH>>Wordpad)

When you click the UPLOAD button on the job site, browse to your location, highlight your document and click OPEN. It should be on its way.

Let us know how you get on.

Cheers
