    Instant CV homepage
    Front end of the instantCV website while in beta

    A side project I built to reduce the hassle of creating a CV. This website would build a CV for a user in one click after they logged in with their LinkedIn profile. The site gathered 100+ users in beta with zero marketing spend. I didn’t continue as the project as LinkedIn API was restrictive and only a limited set of fields were available without having approved partner status.

    I’m still not sure why this hasn’t been built by anyone. Word has a LinkedIn integration, but even then it only gives suggestions on how to populate your CV. Maybe I’ll give this another go sometime..
