    Amazing. I had no idea that it was norm in the EU.

    It’s pretty standard in Japan, too, in my experience – though it goes even further, where a resume is a form you purchase and fill out. I guess this makes it easier to compare candidates and shows off their penmanship.

    Here in Australia I believe it’s considered almost rude to include a photo. Almost like you’re overselling yourself, or trying to compensate for a lack elsewhere – rather than it necessarily being about discrimination.
