How to import your Europass CV to create a new CV

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

Two ways of importing your Europass CV:

  1. Using the Comoto CV Import Wizard
  2. Using the CV 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.

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

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

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

The created CV will be a new CV on your CV list and will not change existing CV within Comoto.

The CV creation wizard can only be used to create a new CV not to update an existing CV, if you want to update or overwrite an existing Europass CV you should use the CV List import feature as described below.

Using the CV List for importing

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

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, by doing this you should be aware that you will overwrite/delete your existing CV with the new data. After pressing this icon you will get the same pop-up image as in the CV Import Wizard and you should upload your Europass CV.
