Guest post by Omar Khan

When applying for jobs in different countries, you may find that employers’ expectations will vastly differ from country to country. For example, while four-page CVs are totally acceptable in Saudi Arabia, the same CV would be immediately rejected in the UK for being too long.

As an international job-seeker, the first hurdle you will have to clear is the CV. It is the very first impression an employer receives of you, so it’s important to get it right. First impressions never get a second chance, therefore it’s critical that you take the time to research each nation’s specific requirements regarding the content and formatting of your résumé.

So how can you ensure that your CV makes it to the top of the pile? You may want to scroll down to view this infographic guide from the team at Hansen & Company which includes some great advice on how to write an international résumé. It features many helpful tips about how to tailor the content and formatting of your job applications based on various national standards.

Best of luck with your job hunting journey!
