How to Add a CV to your Packet


At UCSF, appointment and advancement packets are created, reviewed, and routed within the Advance system. As a candidate for an appointment or advancement action, you will have a packet created for you by your Service Center AP generalist. It is your responsibility to update your My CV data and then to copy that CV into your packet 

  • To copy your My CV data into your packet, you will need to access Advance through, and follow the step by step instructions above.

Step by Step Process:

1. Log into Advance

2. Click the My Packet tab

- The packet is defined at the top of the page (to the right of the folder icon)

- Packet pages are hyperlinks just below the folder icon

- If you have two (or more) packets in process, select the appropriate packet

- Click the other action under the folder icon on the far right


3. Click the CV link under the folder icon

  • If you’ve already copied a CV and want to copy an updated version, scroll to the bottom of the CV and click the Copy CV button

4. Read the statement on the right side of the page (above the Copy CV button) and check the box indicating you understand the process

5. Click the Copy CV button to copy your My CV data into your packet

6. Click the filter links in the upper right of your CV to see what a reviewer will see



In My CV, each line of data has a year associated with it; this year drives the filter:

  • If you see data that is older than the filter you applied, you may need to update your My CV data and then copy a new version of your My CV into the packet
  • The CV you add to your packet is reviewed by referees and all reviewers of the packet
  • You can update the CV in your packet up until the Chair certifies; but be mindful that after the review process begins, you will only want to do this upon request
