Europass CV

Europass CV

The Europass CV helps users highlight their skills, qualifications and work experience.

When it comes to finding a job you need to stand out, you need to be noticed. You need to make sure that employers understand what you have achieved and what skills and qualifications you possess.

The Europass CV is in a standardised format that is recognised, and used, throughout Europe. Whatever job you are applying for, the Europass CV presents your skills and competences in a clear format that makes it easy for potential employers to be able to understand what you are able to offer.
