The Launch of a New Europass CV and European Skills Passport
A new Europass CV was launched in December 2012.
The Europass CV is one of the most widely tools used by job-seekers across Europe. Over two million Europass CVs were completed in English in 2012! In order to make the document even more useful a new online editor has been launched.
The new system is easy to navigate and contains direct preview of the final document. Users can now add more personal information on their CV such as:
- information on their personal websites / blogs
- instant messaging information, and
- add supporting documentation such as language certificates.
The CV has been redesigned to make sure the document more legible and more effective in highlighting important information.
An example of Europass CV is available on the Europass website.
European Skills Passport
The European Skills Passport was launched with the new CV. The ESP is an electronic folder created to reinforce the CV by providing evidence of skills and qualifications listed in it. The European Skills Passport can contain a wide range of documents such as the Certificate Supplement, Language Passport, the scan of Diplomas, attestations of employment etc.
When attached to a Europass CV, the European Skills Passport will reinforce the CV by bringing evidence of skills and qualifications listed.
