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?

As a giant generalisation, Greek employers prefer larger resumes, while in Norway resumes should be no longer than two pages. In New Zealand and Italy a senior executive resume of five pages is seen as okay by recruiters.
