Document Highlights

The Europass initiative offers a standardized format for job seekers to present their skills and qualifications in a manner that employers can easily understand and evaluate.

By making educational qualifications and work experience more transparent across borders, the initiative improves the ability of employers and workers to respond to changes in supply and demand in the European labour market.
