It consists of separate fields that are designed to facilitate the completion of the profile.
This tool is an extension of Europass Profile, which allows the user to pick the specific information that he/she wants from his/her Europass Profile and adjust it to the job that he/she wants to apply for. Thus, multiple numbers of CVs can be created without changing anything on the main profile.
