Yo don't need a db for this, but you will need to place the CV onto
the file system so you can attach it to the email. Its not a hard
process if you use something like phpmailer.
Show user form with upload field
process the form on the server (incl file upload)
check the file extension to ensure you're not sending something bad
create the email
attach the file
log that you received the file and send the email
unlink the file
