On Jan 30, 2019, we rolled out the exciting CN Premium Account. Every CN user has the opportunity to upgrade their regular CN account to a Premium account.
Features and services the Premium Account offers:
- Premium members' CN ePortfolio receives a higher ranking in the CN Member search results. This provides high visibility for networking and employment.
- Upload large files up to 1GB/file (right now it is 10MB/file for free users).
- Upload files from Google drive.
- Use the CN email system. Premium members will be able to contact other users from within CN directly.
- Use Anar seeds to renew membership after the first year. Detailed rules will be released later.
- View the complete list of Portfolio visitors, including prospective employers.
- Create different versions of ePortfolio, job application tracking, and more.
Note: the following Premium features are already available to institution users: upload large files up to 1GB/file, upload files from Google drive, use the CN email system.
We are offering an introductory price of $1/month at this stage. The minimum membership period is 12 months, so you will need to pay $12 to upgrade your account for a full year. This price may increase as we add more advanced features and services to the package.
Please also note that cancellation of the Premium Membership is not supported. The Premium membership fee is non-refundable.
