Curriculum Vitae (CV) are used by many people as a tool to promote and describe their academic, training and professional accomplishments when applying for a job, further study etc. As many different CV formats are available and used by people in various countries, the Europass CV has been developed so that there is a standard CV format people can use to detail their qualifications and skills in a straightforward and understandable manner.

The Europass CV can be completed in 26 different languages and other Europass documents can be attached to it.
