How to Use: Import Europass CV to your Resume

Import Europass CV to your Resume at the Comoto Resume Manager

With our new integration to Europass it is possible to import your exisiting Resume data from the Europass standard into Comoto using the Europass XML file.

Two ways of import Europass Resume:

  1. Using the Comoto Resume Import Wizard
  2. Using the Resume list icon for importing

Both types of imports are going to use your existing Europass XML file, so you need to have that within reach, preferably existing on your Computer/USB stick, because you wil have to upload the Europass XML file to the Comoto CV Import Engine.

Using the Comoto Resume import Wizard

Please login to your Comoto account here, go to the menu My Resume and choose “Resume creation Wizard”.

Then you need to activate our Resume Import Wizard, where you can for time being import your existing data from LinkedIn and Europass.

Our new and improved Resume Import Wizard now contains the ability to import from LinkedIn and from Europass.

You should choose “Import from Europass XML File”, enter the name of your new Resume in the Europass CV format, choose the language you want for this Resume and press “Next”.

A dialogue will pop-up asking you to upload your “Europass XML file”, select the Europass CV file you want to import and press “Next”.

Your existing data from the Resume in the Europass CV format which just have been uploaded will be converted into the Comoto Resume standard and this would finalize the job of importing the Resume in the Europass CV format. This can be done within a minute, so you are saving a lot of time by doing it in this way.

The created Resume will be a new Resume on your Resume list and will not change existing Resume’s within Comoto. The Resume creation wizard can only be used to create a new Resume not to update an existing Resume, if you want to update or overwrite an existing Resume in the Europass CV format you should use the Resume List import feature as described below.

Using the CV List for importing

If you want to import into an existing Resume or update an existing Resume you should login to Comoto as described above, and then choose “My Resume” to see you existing list of Resume.

You should then find the little “Yellow Europass Star Icon” (see arrow above). By pressing this icon you choose to import a new Europass CV into this CV/Resume, by doing this you should be aware that you will overwrite/delete your existing CV/Resume with the new data. After pressing this icon you will get the same pop-up image as in the Resume Import Wizard and you should upload your Europass CV/Resume.
