Meaning of plus sign leading off phone numbers

I get a lot of resumes from foreign nationals applying for jobs with outfit I work for, and often when they list their phone numbers, they put a plus sign (+) in front of the country code. I should know why this is done, after having spent severeal years in Europe, but I haven't a clue. I don't recall seeing any plus signs on non-US phone keypads. Can someone help me out here?
