What is a WORD document and how can I make sure it is 2MB?

A lot of our candidates are unsure when it comes to us asking them for a WORD document that is a certain size. We hope that this short blog article will help you better understand what we mean when we ask you for such a file to be uploaded to our database.

When reading this blog, we suggest you have a look at your CV, and check if it matches the information below.

WORD is a program created by Microsoft and it has a logo that looks like this:



Our free online application process only accepts CVs that have been typed out in WORD format. You can also make sure your document is a word document by looking at the file name. If it says the file name and ends in .doc , you know it is a word file. Unfortunately, you cannot upload a scanned image or a PDF.

In order to make sure it is within the 2MB (2 mega byte) size limit, all you need to do is right click on the file, go to properties and it will give you a file size. If it is over 2MB, you may need to take out some information or compress the file. You can find compress applications online, and they are free.

Microsoft offers some more information about how to reduce the size of your word documents here.

If it is a WORD document and less than 2MB, you are ready to upload your CV  to our online application!
