Wondering if I should include an application photo in my CV? Maybe there are different practices depending on the country? I am interested in Germany, England, Spain, USA, Dubai.

Hi,

This depends on the country. You are expected to include a picture in Germany and other German speaking countries. As far as I know in the UK, Spain and USA you don’t normally do so.

Best,

Fernando

Hilghly country dependent. In France you must have one - or used to back when I was starting at least); I didn't in Germany, not sure in UK, Spain or Dubai. Definitely do NOT put one in the US.

Hi,

In general, it's not required and most of my candidates from different countries didn't have one.
