Second part of the presentation was meant to contact with the philosophy of CV writing and how to use Europass in order to make our everyday life easier.  In every country or the European Union and European Economic Area there is a National Europass Centre that coordinates all relevant Europass activities. The National Europass Centre is the first point of contact for any person or organization interested in using the Europass or learn more about it.

We learned that the main duties of the National Europass Centres are to coordinate the management of Europass documents, publicize the Europass and its documents, ensure that information and guidance centers are well informed about Europass and the Europass documents, ensure that all Europass documents are also available in printed form, acting as representatives of each country in the European network of National Europass Centres (https://europass.cedefop.europa.eu/el).

Our experience by learning these kind of  tools,  easy to use,  and the adaptation of these tools the aim is to make everyone’s career paths easier to find and search for goals.
