A Resume (CV) That Will Work Throughout Europe


If you’ve ever looked for work in various European countries, you probably know that in each country, the rules for CVs (resumes) are a bit different from each other. The solution is Europass, described this way on its site:
Whether you are planning to enrol in an education or training programme, looking for a job, or getting experience abroad, it is important to be able to make your skills and competences clearly understood.
Europass is a new way of helping people to:
  • make their skills and qualifications clearly and easily understood in Europe (European Union, EFTA/EEA and candidate countries);
  • move anywhere in Europe.
Europass consists of five documents:
  • two documents (Europass curriculum vitae (CV) and Europass Language Passport) you can fill in yourself; and
  • three other documents (Europass Certificate Supplement, Europass Diploma Supplement and Europass Mobility) filled in and issued by competent organisations.
