How to compose an Europass CV

The Europass CV is a Curriculum Vitae layout that is universally accepted by organizations within Europe. It presents your skills and qualifications in a well arranged structure that makes it explicit and communicates effectively. Having an Europass CV is of great advantage for you if you are applying for a job in Europe or for Admission into any of their Universities.

This, however, does not mean that the application of this beautiful CV is limited to Europe. It can also be used for local applications if you are not in Europe, in fact, it could give you an edge over other applicants especially when you are applying for jobs in International Companies.

Europass has a website with a resume builder in many languages that allows you to compose your CV in the Europass Format then provide for you an option to share it or download it in PDF/Word Format.

It also allow you to edit and update your CV at anytime using the website, all you need to do is visit the website anytime you need to edit anything and upload the PDF/Word Format of the CV you have constructed before. The System will integrate it and you can perform any edit and re-download. And at times, the website still remembers your last visit through cookies and once you login to the website, it pulls up all your details.
