Louis Le Mercier, CEO & Co-founder of CV Swap, knows the importance of having an eye-catching, complete, and stellar CV when applying for jobs. His app helps users to optimize their resume and information for the greatest chance of landing that dream job. With the quick learning curve of Bubble, Le Mercier was able to build a minimum viable product (MVP) of his app in just 15 days.
Tell us about your app and what it does.
CV Swap is a web app that allows you to easily create a professional and design resume in just a few minutes.
Recruiters spend a few seconds on a CV the first time they see it. It is therefore important to have an optimized CV to catch the attention. To make an effective CV, certain skills and knowledge are necessary.
We wanted to make this accessible to everyone looking for a job or internship, thanks to an intuitive app!
How does your app work?
The user can try CV Swap for free by creating an account. They can then choose between several CV templates. Once they choose one of the templates, they simply add their information as if they were filling out a form.
The layout is automatically created, as if by magic, and you can see the preview of your CV being created in real time. The user can easily customize his CV by changing the color, font size or even choose another template while keeping his information. Once the resume is finished, the user can download his resume in PDF if he has a premium account.
Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.
With my partner Fabien Feuillard, I launched the media "Être Étudiant." It's a media for students, followed by more than 1 million people on social media.
By exchanging with our community, we identified many of their problems, such as creating a good CV.
Why did you build your app on Bubble?
After testing several no-code development platforms, I quickly got hooked on Bubble. The learning curve was quite fast at the beginning, in less than a week I was able to create the first elements of the site.
While digging, I discovered more and more features and therefore more possibilities. In 15 days, I had an MVP, or rather a proof that I could build CV Swap on Bubble. What I also liked a lot more is the community behind it which is very active on the forums or on Youtube. It sometimes saved me when I could be blocked!
To sum up, I'm very happy to have discovered Bubble! I finally feel like I can launch almost any web project and test it in a few days!
What have been your milestones or successes so far?
The first success was when my grandmother managed to create a CV on the MVP! This proved that the UX was nice and that the site was intuitive for everyone.
The 2nd success is when we officially launched CV Swap: 1 month after its launch, CV Swap already has several thousands of users and their feedback is very good!
What are your future plans for your app?
We now want to propose new CV templates and work on new features requested by our users. Once the V2 is launched, we want CV Swap to become a reference in France in its field, and maybe later abroad!
And of course, we are working on other no-code projects...!
