cinfoPoste – Frequently asked questions by candidates
It helps our artificial intelligence system understand who you are. We recommend you modify and complete the list of job titles and skills to make sure it accurately reflects your profile.
You shouldn’t. It is your original CV that will be considered when recruiters evaluate your profile. Only our artificial intelligence “sees” the extract.
To replace your standard CV, please go to the account management section and select “Update CV”.
The system allows you to make use of a generic CV. Ensure this includes all the information you want to share for the vacancy you are applying for. Remember, the cover letter should always target the job you are applying for. If you wish to, you can upload additional CVs under “Documents” in your personal area.
During the application process, you can copy/paste your cover letter in a dedicated textbox.
When logged in, you can find a section “Documents” in your personal area. Upload as many documents as you want. These documents will be included in your application when you apply for a job on cinfoPoste.
The matching bar only has an indicative value. If you believe you have skills relevant to this job and the required work experience, then you should apply. Maybe you can enhance your CV to make the match clearer.
The matching bar only has an indicative value. The tool is based on a complex algorithm which includes several weighted averages, such as your job title (i.e. the main profession you indicate when you register), keywords in your main CV, and the description of the job advertisement.
Job letter and job agents
Job agents are job alerts sent via email. They are generated automatically based on your profile and help you keep up-to-date with the latest vacancies that are most relevant to your profile. You can activate/change your job agents manually under “Job agents” in your personal area.
You can create job agents yourself in your personal area by completing the section of interest to you. This allows you to receive vacancies that most closely match your interest.
The test has been developed by a certified work psychologist. The results are calculated by an algorithm that determines potential attitudes and behaviours in the workplace. Please note that this questionnaire is not a detailed analysis; for that reason, results must be considered as purely indicative. The test has no legal value and cannot replace a professional certification.
Once the personality test is published, it cannot be hidden. Unless you apply for a job through cinfoPoste, the results can only be seen by cinfo staff and will never be shared with any third parties. The test result is in no way intended to express judgements and will not have any prejudicial consequences; it is for information purposes only.
You can retake the test every three months in your personal area.
The video CV allows candidates to showcase their skills and experiences, and provides a more well-rounded view of who they are. For cinfo, recording a video CV is not mandatory (unless specifically requested), but it can enhance the visibility of your profile to recruiters. Read more about video CV on LinkedIn.
You will be asked four questions about your skills, professional experience and motivation. The four questions can be read before starting to record the video.
Once recorded, the video is formatted and then made available in your personal area. The process takes around 1 hour.
Unless you apply for a job through cinfoPoste, the video CV is only visible to cinfo staff and will not be shared with any third parties.
This is possible in your personal area, once the first recording has been processed and made available.
