CV Share


CV Share plugin allows employers to search CV's created by students based on Job classifications and sub classifications. 

This plugin has two parts

  1. The interface for the student to create CV pages
  2. An interface for the employer to search for these pages. The employer will not have access to any other part of the Mahara.


The user creating a CV Share  page must have at-least one:

These content will be available to the user creating the CV Share on a drop-down. (Note: If a user has only profile picture or one portfolio page, this will be selected by default and there won't be a drop-down).

The Mahara site will need an Employer profile:

  • Create an Institution
  • The Institution name field must be employer (Note: The display name does not need to be named employer). 
  • Any users you intend to be an employer has to be added to this institution.

User belonging to this institution will be given a search only interface when they login. The other areas of Mahara won't be available to these users.
