<aside> ❓ Sometimes, when uploading your CV and Resume into our Applicant Tracking System with a different format to PDF can cause disruption within it and a delay on Application Review. At Remote, we take Candidate Experience seriously and therefore we want to keep disruptions to application review to as little as possible. See below ways you can convert your CV into a PDF document for a smooth sailing process of your application.
