Updating your Devex profile

Our platform is used by hundreds of international development recruiters every day who are searching for the right candidates for their organisation. A great way to get noticed by recruiters is to make sure that you keep a complete and updated profile. 

To edit your profile, log in to your Devex account and click on Update my profile on the Devex user menu:

Important notes:

  • The Personal Information and Professional Summary sections should always be filled out completely. You might encounter data errors, if you leave these sections blank.

  • Do not manually fill out the Start date and End date fields. Just click on the blank space, and use the pop-up calendar instead. Otherwise, all the information you enter will not be saved. And make sure to fill out all required fields in order to save your entry or any changes you make.

  • For the Education sections, if you want your entry to be reflected as the current/present one, the End Date field should not be filled out.

To do so, just click on the Start date field, select your month and year from the pop-up calendar, and then leave the End date field untouched.

  • The only file types that can be uploaded to your Devex profile are the following: DOC, RTF, PDF, TXT, PPT, XLS. The maximum file size of each upload is 3MB. Not sure what your document's file type is? You may check HERE.


  • Make sure that you've successfully uploaded your CV!

CVs that are not uploaded properly will cause an error in job applications. To check whether your CV has been properly uploaded, you must be able to download your CV directly from your Devex profile.

To do so, just log in to your Devex account as usual, click on Update my profile on the user menu, click on the Done Editing button, scroll down to the CV Download section of your profile, and click on the Download button. You should be able to download your CV right away, otherwise, delete the currently uploaded CV, and then re-upload your CV. Don't forget to click on the Save button afterwards.
