    Have you ever heard of the Europass Curriculum Vitae?
    It is an EU initiative to increase transparency of qualification and mobility of citizens in Europe. It aims to be a Life Long Learning Portfolio of documents containing the descriptions of all learning achievements, official qualifications, work results, skills and competencies, acquired over time, along with the related documentation. The aim is to make a person's skills and qualifications clearly understood throughout Europe.

    I would like you to have a look at the following example.
    Here you can see the instructions for using the Europass Curriculum Vitae.
    Once you know how it works you can either download the Europass CV documents or create your Europass CV online now.
    Once it is ready, send it to me by email. The name of the file should be: cv_hm_2010_yoursurnameinitialofyourname
    Deadline: Monday 15th November 2010.
