We want to help you make the most out of our resume builder. That’s why we’ve decided to put together a few posts to guide you through the process of using Enhancv. Today I’ll focus on the ways you can sign up to the platform and how to setup your account to make sure you’re aware of all the benefits it has to offer.

Signing Up

1. How do I sign up?

You can sign up to the Enhancv platform quickly by using your Facebook or Linkedin profiles, or you can create an account with an email and password. Oh, and don’t forget to read and accept the Terms and Conditions in order to be able to proceed to the next step.

2. What gets imported to my resume if I sign up using Linkedin or Facebook?

I know, I know, it would be great if you could import all the information to your resume right away without having to write it down. As much as technology lets us, we do our best to do things easier for you.

When you sign up using your Linkedin profile, only the very basic information will be imported. This includes your profile picture, your name, and email address. It is a bit better with Facebook, though. If you have your education and experience filled in your Facebook profile, expect all of these to be imported together with your profile picture, name, and email address.

3. Can my accounts be merged?

If you forget you’re already registered and register a second time by mistake, your accounts will automatically be merged – provided that the signup email is the same in both cases. If all emails you used are different, then merging your accounts will not be possible.

After these few simple steps, you are ready to go!

Account Settings

1. Where do I find the ‘’Account Settings’’?

You can find your account settings in the main menu in the header. Click on the Account button to see further options.

2. What does the ‘’Account’’ include?

In your account, you can set up the following: Profile & Passwords; Customization; Billing & Plans and Email Notifications. Let’s go through them separately.

Profile & Passwords

Here you can change your profile information such as the name, your profile picture or your password. If you logged in with your Facebook or LinkedIn profile, this option will not affect your next sign in. It changes the password you used when you signed up with the ‘’email+password’’ option.

Further down you can also find a ‘’Delete account’’ button which will easily delete your account permanently after your confirmation. Please, don’t use it – we’ll be sad to see you go. ;(

Whatever changes you make, don’t forget to save them in order to avoid typing everything in all over again.

Billing & Plans

In this section, you can find all the information about our prices and plans

In the last row of this table, you can see your Current plan. If you are on a Free plan, you can upgrade to either a monthly or yearly Pro plan. Just click on the button in the relevant row. If you are on one of the Pro plans, there will be an indication as in when your account will be downgraded – To be transferred on _.

Scroll a bit lower and you can see the Apply promo code option. This allows you to claim your discount after we reward you with a promo code.

At the very bottom of this section, you can find your Recent Payment History which shows all your payments in one place. Details such as the date, amount, plan, payment method and receipt are clearly displayed there.

Email Notifications

Decide whether you’d like to receive application notifications or new feature announcements by ticking/unticking the boxes.

The application notifications include notifications you get once someone left feedback on your resume, answered to your Top Strengths request, or asked you to define theirs.

In the new feature announcements, you’ll be able to receive useful information about the newest features on our platform and how to use them to get all the benefits. We also send career hacks from time to time to help you prepare for an interview or show you an example of a superhuman resume. No spam, only the cool stuff.

The choice is yours. And don’t forget to save the changes.

The only emails you can’t unsubscribe from are subscription notifications (sent a week before your subscription will be automatically renewed), password resets messages and verification e-mails.
