Module 2: My RAY profile
2. My user profile
2.4. Documentation storage
One of the biggest advantages of your RAY Profile is that you can store all your Europass documents, diplomas, certificates, etc. in it. If you are still not aware of the Europass documents and of how you can create your own Europass CV and cover letter, your language passport and skills passport, please refer to Module 1 or to Europass.
Since you might wish to store as many CVs and cover letters as you need. Please give each CV and cover letter a different name. For instance if you apply for a chef you could have files named “CV_chef” and “cover letter_chef”. When you create/adapt a new CV and cover letter to apply for a bar tender, you will have “CV_bartender” and cover letter “bar-tender”.
You can add to your RAY profile either an existing CV or another document or create a new Europass document using the online Europass tool . Europass will help you create your new CV, cover letter, language passport or skills passport (the skills passport is actually your portfolio). Once ready, save your file/s, export and upload on your RAY profile.
In the “Other documents” field you can store your diplomas and certificates or any other documents you might wish to submit to employers, for instance your Youthpass. All your documents should be either in pdf or in docx format. Please bear in mind the size requirement – each document should be no bigger than 500 KB.
You can create your profile in steps over a period of time. Just make sure that each time you enter new information you Save it. Next time you log in, the information will appear and you can go on editing. Once created, your profile can be edited at any time.
