Uploading a file is not a must but it will make your online appearance more complete. We recommend a .pdf file for your CV.

Not allowed are .doc, .rtf and .xls files. Make sure your filenames do not contain any special characters and spaces. E.g. \ / : * ? " < > |,'. Such files are rejected by the server and can not be attached to your CV.
