Europass celebrates 2 years of its new Europass website
Two years ago Europass was relaunched by the European Commission offering a series of new information resources for individuals seeking work or learning opportunities in Europe. The core element of Europass is the e-profile where individuals can create their own personal secure on-line portfolio to hold CV’s, references, job and course information, digital certificates and more.
Already there have been more than 45 million visits to the Europass website and close to 4 million Europass e-profiles have been created. Users of Europass are from over 100 countries and mostly under 35 years of age.
Europass is available in 30 languages including English, Irish and more recently Ukrainian. The Europass platform continues to improve to meet the needs of its users and the trends of the European job market and learning ecosystem with plans for inclusion of digital credentials and more information resources to come on stream. It’s a free personal and secure digital tool which helps manage learning and career development. You can design your CV, manage and track job applications, explore and reflect on skills, experience and understand your qualifications in a European context.
On its second anniversary Nicolas Schmit, Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights said ‘Europass is a great tool for everyone looking for work in the EU. You can find job offers, create a CV and cover letter, and send your application easily. The Commission has also recently translated a number of Europass tools into Ukrainian to support those who have fled the Russian aggression. We hope this will help them to find a job and rebuild their lives in the EU.’
