For this reason, the Brentwood CDC is taking steps to help older members of our community use quality resources to find and apply for jobs:

How to List Foreign Work on a Resume – eHow

You only get a few seconds to grab the hiring manager’s attention with your resume. But if the manager fails to recognize the significance of your international experience — perhaps because he doesn’t realize the responsibility associated with the job title, or the size and status of the company — you might lose out on an opportunity to impress. You can’t assume a domestic hiring manager will be familiar with foreign operations, even if the company is well-known abroad. Instead, assume the reader knows nothing about the international firm, and format your resume accordingly.

Sólo tienes unos segundos para captar la atención del encargado que revisa su Hoja de Vida. Pero si el gerente no tiene en cuenta la importancia de su experiencia internacional – tal vez porque no se da cuenta de la responsabilidad asociada con el título del trabajo, o el tamaño y la situación de la empresa – puede perder una oportunidad de impresionar. Usted no puede asumir que los directores de recursos humanos estarán familiarizados con operaciones en el extranjero, incluso si la compañía no es bien conocida en el extranjero. En su lugar, asume que el lector no sabe nada acerca de la firma internacional, y ajuste su hoja de vida con eso en cuenta.
