Very interesting resume with a photo, date of birth, marital status, and number of children. I assume that is an accepted standard in the part of the world you live in.

In germany a photo is mostly a must, albeit if I think about the potential implication for POC it should be banned imho. I learned it this way and it was never a problem for me (due to being white and male #privilege). The amount of kids is a must so companies know what they have to deal with in terms of flexibility

Wow, what a huge cultural difference compared to western countries. I can't imagine being asked how many kids I have when being considered for a job or to provide a photo. Very interesting!

My thoughts exactly, very interesting. Though Germany is a western country so I guess we should say compared to the US.
