Write a Resumé that Travels Across Countries and Cultures

Write a Resumé that Travels Across Countries and Cultures | Job Hunting | Scoop.it
If you're applying for jobs outside your native country, you need to re-examine much of what you know about putting together a resume. How many pages should it be? What format is best? Do you send it in MS Word or as a PDF?

Via TonyDeblauwe
Kyle Diemer's insight:

Tim O'Neil gives a few great tips on making sure your Resume is up to par if you're looking for an overseas job.  

 

I couldn't agree more with his insistance on having a cover letter - when hiring that is the first "filter" I have.  Resume's without a cover letter are set aside in a folder - those that have them are then read.  Template cover letters are tossed in with the folks who didn't submit one at all.
