How to publish and share my resume
When you finished polishing your resume you need to make it public by selecting corresponding option in resume settings. Note that for free accounts you can have no more than one public resumes, which means if you make one resume public all other resumes become inactive and inaccessible to viewers.
Easiest way to share your resume is to send a link of your resume page. In that case anyone who has that link can visit and view your resume.
In case you want to make your resume private and not visible to everyone, you can do so in your resume settings. You can send the resume to specific people by providing their emails. In addition it is possible to set up a protection with password, pin-code or pattern to ensure only people you want can see your resume.
