Between February 2005 and July 2017, 100 million Europass CVs were created online and 60 million CV templates downloaded, according to figures just released.
Some 120 000 CVs were completed online in 2005, when Europass came to life; in 2016, the figure was over 19.2 million, some 85 times more.
In 2016 alone, there were 26.8 million visits to the Europass website compared to 1.2 million in 2005, a 22-fold increase.
Cedefop's Europass coordinator Philippe Tissot said of the achievement: 'Starting form a blank page in 2004, we developed a user-friendly CV editor, paying constant attention to users’ needs. Today, 1.5 million CVs are generated through the editor every month, and over 85% of users rate the tool as good or excellent.'
