Guideline for evidencing personal skills and competences in the europass CV.

This guideline supplements the "personal skills and competences section" of the europass CV. Working through the guideline will help you to identify your skills and competences you have developed through activities and experiences both within and outside the workplace. These skills and competences are not recognised by any accrediting body and are called "informal competences".

Why is it important to document your personal skills and competences in the CV?

Actually, there is much more you bring with you for a training or workplace than is told by your previous vocational and educational pathway. Today, most of these personal skills and competences are essential for a great number of occupations. And it is this "added value" that might convince an employer that you are especially qualified for a certain job. Provision of information regarding your personal skills and competences to an employer may allow you to stand out from others as a suitable candidate for a job.

WARNING: Be sure to attribute to yourself only those competences you have actually acquired. You must be aware that in an interview, an employer will ask for details and evidence of your activities.
