Work and Study Abroad International CVs If you are applying for jobs or placements abroad, do be aware that the style of applications may differ from that used in the UK. Since the birth of the Internet, CVs have moved closer to an international style but there are still substantial differences in the CV style used in different countries. In many European countries such as France, Belgium and Germany, and some non-European countries such as China, it’s common for CVs to include a a passport-sized photograph in the top right-hand corner whereas in the UK and the USA photographs are frowned upon as this may contravene equal opportunity legislation - a photograph makes it easier to reject a candidate on grounds of ethnicity, sex or age. In France, your CV should be in French.

Case Files of Detective Nose It was a long and almost unbearable drive out into the desert as the hot sun beat down on Detective Nose’s face. As luck would have it, his air conditioning had broken down only two days earlier and despite having all the windows open, the heat was simply excruciating. As the inspector sipped on some of the water that he brought for the trip, the thought that he may have somehow missed his destination was beginning to penetrate his mind. Just as he was about to turn around and head back, a small sign appeared that read “Ross Expeditions Here”. With a silent sigh of relief, he turned his car towards the small cabin that could be seen in the distance. As Nose reached the front door, Jason Ross introduced himself and motioned for the detective to come inside.
