Comoto launches Resume in the Europass CV format integration (import/export)

Comoto is proud to you inform that we are now launching a full integration to the very popular Resume format – the European CV format Europass – making it easy for you to create a Europass CV or to import your Europass CV to be able to use all the smart Comoto Resume management features within seconds.

Europass

Europass integration Europass was developed by the European Union to have one standard Resume format with all the necessary information for it to be used in all EU member states. As this EU Resume standard ensures the same visual look and feel and the same content structure the use of the Europass CV format is increasing every day.

The website for Europass created 3.8 million resumes last year, but please notice that on the Europass site you only create your Resume in Europass CV format, but not save the Resume data you have entered. If you want to change your Resume data you have to upload your Resume in the Europass CV format again and make the changes and then download it again to your file for further use.

Comoto not only ensures a smooth and easy update but also an easy access to the many Comoto free Resume features and many free Resume templates making it possible to use your Europass CV data for your next application or job interview.

Europass and Comoto

Europass integration Comoto’s Resume integration includes both Resume import and Resume export features – the import features also makes it possible for you with our fast import from Linkedin to create a Resume in the Europass CV format in seconds. You can also easily update, choose a free template and generate for example as many word or pdf templates you wish.

Comoto launches Europass Resume integration (import/export)

My name is Lorem Ipsum and a I have just been contacted by a headhunter regarding my nonsense Resume!

My name is Lorem Ipsum and a I have just been contacted by a headhunter regarding my nonsense Resume!

nonsense Resume

In the last couple of weeks I have illustrated some of the dirty tricks and issues with Resumes and the job process and I have with examples illustrated that both candidates and companies not always behave with the appropriate ethical standards and moral – but what about the Resume database owners and their behavior?

Comoto have over the last couple of years tried to learn and understand our competitors and potential partners better. To evaluate features offered by these we have on a regular basis added a profile to their Resume databases. To ensure that the administrators of these Resume database understand that these Resume from us is only for testing we use names that makes it clear for the reader that it is for test purposes only. We use names like Test Tester or Lorem Ipsum and the Resumes data field’s, text or resume template is without any doubt complete nonsense.

Even though we believe it is clear for everybody that nobody could have any interest in our test Resume we have received many emails from Resume databases providers informing us that our Resume is or have been of interest to some of their customers and therefore we need to do particular actions – actions that only have the purpose to illustrate for the Resume database’s customers that their Resume are more often updated, their users are alive and also more active than the candidates actually are!

nonsense ResumeThis questionable behavior and by purpose deceiving emails have been received from many Resume databases and also some of the biggest Resume Monsters of the industry as well as international players of the Resume Industry and clearly illustrate that several of these Resume database providers have built automatic systems to generate an artificial interest in your CV / Curriculum Vitae / Resume for you to be positive and use that particular CV/Resume database and/or to perform their wanted actions.

From our side we believe this behavior is another example of why you should take control of your Resume dialog and manage your Resume, Resume Templates and your job process carefully as well as to protect your privacy.

For you as a candidate the above described behavior also have the negative side effect that you over time will stop reacting on mails from Resume databases – unfortunately and in particular if the contact was actually correct and valid.

If you have experienced similar behavior or other doubtful actions to increase a Resume database’s traffic and user interest please let us know at theteam@140.82.38.88

BTW: – For your information – Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s – like “dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. In non tellus eros. Vestibulum ac nulla nibh, at posuere leo. Proin mollis blandit lorem eget consectetur. Maecenas sodales vehicula odio, vel commodo neque adipiscing a. Sed ac dolor suministros turpis. Maecenas tincidunt skabelon aliquet massa, malesuada como to adipiscing justo egestas vitae. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus”

Unique Resume Templates feature – Filter function

Unique Resume Templates feature – Filter function

We have launched a Unique Resume Template feature where you can filter all the different Resume Templates you can use to export your multiple Resumes.

The new Resume filter will help you find the right Resume template for that very important Resume you want to make. There are different ways you can filter the available Resume templates as described below:

  • Language: Filter on different languages (now we only have English ones, but we might have an idea to launch our templates in different languages)
  • Picture: Does the Resume Template include a picture of you or not
  • Graphics: Does the Resume Template include graphical elements or is it plain text
  • Cover letter: Does the Resume Template contain a cover-letter (cover letter will be implemented shortly)
  • Template Type: Short, Basic, Complete or special Resume Template

As you can see we have prepared for new features which includes, Resume Templates in different languages and Resumes including a cover letter in the same design as the Resume.

Why does it have to be a fulltime job to be unemployed

Why does it have to be a fulltime job to be unemployed / searching for a new job?

If you have been so unfortunate to loose your job or leaving your current position you are facing the tedious job of both building or updating your Resume and adding that information to numerous Resume databases. But why does it have to be a fulltime job to be unemployed?

You will soon find out that this is very time-consuming and is both boring and frustrating as it is not in any way structured or standardized – and I postulate that either you lose your temper and get irritated but finalize the information or you might lose your overview of what you entered at what Resume database!

At Comoto we would love to help you making it easier and to stay in control of your Resume dialog thus creating your Curriculum Vitae (or CV – see the difference here) faster than you would have thought was possible:

  1. Sign up and create a profile here
  2. Use your LinkedIn profile to create your first draft Resume (it would take less than a minute – 32 seconds would be a qualified guess)
  3. Add information to your Resume (Remember – get evaluated on a full Resume instead of a relationsship profile) (Take a look at our Resume Tips here, if you need some help building your Resume)
  4. Choose one of our Resume templates (complete version) to create a word file and use that word file to cut and paste information to each Resume database to ensure the same information is in all Resume databases (Creating a PDF version is a matter of seconds – different designs add a few more seconds)
  5. Consider saving the Word file with an appropriate name (Resume Database name XX.XX.XX) if you have changed the usual information or have added information. You can upload that information to Comoto. A Similar approach is recommended when applying for a job, mailing a cover letter and an application (Please notice our unique multiple CV feature to target each Resume to the current job/position)
  6. Create a web profile from your Resume to be able to send a link when meeting somebody you think might be able to help you in your job searching process (Stay in control by having a password on your web profile – a web profiles is a copy of one of your multiple Resumes and can also be targeted to the actual position).

Comoto Funny Friday: Mind the Xerox machine

Comoto Funny Friday: Mind the Xerox machine

Funny Friday: Watch out for accident in the workplace. Office equipment can be dangerous. And some people can be a bit naive and plain st….. This is hilarious, but if this accident should have been prevented I think the producers of photocopying machines should start label the glass plate with a “weight limit” perhaps.

Have a look for yourself:

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddzyEYBcUNQ

I don’t hope it was his CV that he was copying, in that case we know he is not using the Comoto CV / Resume services. So in retrospect you could say use Comoto to take full control of your CV and avoid mishaps and accident like this.

Have a Funny Friday and nice weekend, and until next week we hope for the best.

Resume Tips – Maintain multiple versions of your Resume – multiple resumes

Maintain multiple versions of your Resume – multiple resumes

Many people have or can have more than one role, this is often the case if you have one type of education, and have used this education in a specific area of work. For instance being a software developer within the area of Accounting for many years. Here you have several skills/expertise that could meet the criteria for different types of jobs. You could be a very good developer, project manager which specializes in accounting or even have experience to work with accounting then you and need multiple resumes.

Having more than one Resume is extremely easy in Comoto, you can have as many as you like, and the information can even be inherited from one Resume to another, then you only have to maintain the differences in the Resume.

Komodo a dragon from Indonesia and not free Resume Templates

Comoto is not only about Resume Control and free Resume Templates

The word comoto is also used about other product and service for instance, did you know that Comoto could be mistaken with an indonesian lizard or dragon. Well we looked at some of the people visiting us and the pages they went to after leaving our site, and some of you went looking for more information on this lizard. Thats why we wanted to make it easier for you to find with this post.

Komodo dragon From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Komodo Dragon

Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis)

The Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) is a large species of lizard found in the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, and Gili Motang. A member of the monitor lizard family (Varanidae), it is the largest living species of lizard, growing to an average length of 2 to 3 metres (6.6 to 9.8 ft) and weighing around 70 kilograms (150 lb). Their unusual size has been attributed to island gigantism, since there are no other carnivorous animals to fill the niche on the islands where they live. However, recent research suggests that the large size of komodo dragons may be better understood as representative of a relic population of very large varanid lizards that once lived across Indonesia and Australia, most of which, along with other megafauna, died out after contact with modern humans. Fossils very similar to V. komodoensis have been found in Australia dating to greater than 3.8 million years ago, and its body size remained stable on Flores, one of the handful of Indonesian islands where it is currently found, ever since Flores (along with neighboring islands) were isolated by rising sea levels approximately 900,000 years ago. As a result of their size, these lizards dominate the ecosystems in which they live. Although Komodo dragons eat mostly carrion, they will also hunt and ambush prey including invertebrates, birds, and mammals.

Mating begins between May and August, and the eggs are laid in September. About twenty eggs are deposited in abandoned megapode nests and incubated for seven to eight months, hatching in April, when insects are most plentiful. Young Komodo dragons are vulnerable and therefore dwell in trees, safe from predators and cannibalistic adults. They take around three to five years to mature, and may live as long as fifty years. They are among the rare vertebrates capable of parthenogenesis, in which females may lay viable eggs if males are absent, producing only male offspring.

Komodo dragons were first recorded by Western scientists in 1910. Their large size and fearsome reputation make them popular zoo exhibits. In the wild their range has contracted due to human activities and they are listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. They are protected under Indonesian law, and a national park, Komodo National Park, was founded to aid protection efforts. You can find more information here.

Hirsch Design

The Comoto is a 100% all electric, all aluminum alloy, lightweight motorcycle. Specifcally well suited for commuting, off-road use and agencies requiring security vehicles.

Comoto Motorcycle

The 2010 Comoto was conceived and engineered by Jeff Hirsch of  Hirsch Design.  The Comoto was meticulously designed, and, entirely  hand  built  from the ground up, using only high strength 6061-T6 alloy aircraft aluminum sheet metal in  its unique  monocoque  frame  design.  No welding  is  used,  except  or a few cross members and head tube, therefore there is very little welding to lose the structural integrity of the T6 temper. Only world class high end electronics and high intensity components were chosen for  the Comoto’s overall strength, weight savings, handling and aesthetic look.

So if you are interested in this cool motorcycle, you can find more interesting information about this unique motorcycle here.
