Convert to German CV format for English jobs? (Munich)


What do you recommend - apply for German web/tech jobs with a US style resume or convert it to German-style CV?

I moved to Germany after working in the US for a decade. I am currently seeking IT project management jobs in companies which have English as their office language, in Munich.

I have a polished American style resume that I have refined over the years, which has helped land me some great jobs in the US. Some friends who have lived in Europe seem to indicate it is fine to send a US-style resume especially for IT/web jobs. Others recommend converting it to a German style CV (with a professional photo, age, greater length etc). Note: the CV/resume would still be in English, as I am just a beginner in the German language.
