France

When applying for a job in France, your résumé needs to be in French, unless otherwise stated and you will be required to provide certain information including a photograph and delicate personal information, such as age and marital status. Information concerning your religion, state of health, family and political and trade union affiliations should not be shown on your CV.

 

Be careful not to use résumé, as Un résumé means a summary, whereas a résumé refers to un CV (curriculum vitae). So when applying for a job with a French company, you need to provide un CV, not un résumé.

 

The entire CV is usually a single page, but with a longer professional career (over 10 years) or for more technical positions, it can be two pages.
