About Curriculum Vitae

Europass CV

Nowadays, when applying for a job or an internship CV has a very important and crucial role in the selection of candidates for the certain job position. Various CV templates can be found on the Internet and it is difficult to decide which of the offered templates could be the most appropriate for you. European Commission has found a solution and established a common Curriculum Vitae. The Europass Curriculum Vitae is a CV template that has been translated into all EU/EEA languages. In the Europass CV, individuals can record information on their education, work experience and language skills, as well as competences acquired outside formal education and training.

Europass CV is the backbone of the Europass portfolio, to which students or workers can attach other Europass documents according to their needs. It provides individual citizens with a model for a systematic, chronological and flexible presentation of their qualifications and competences.
