Our Recommendations

Emphasize diversity and inclusion

Highlight any experiences or skills you have related to diversity and inclusion. See below more details and examples.

Show your cultural competence

Highlight any experience you have working with people from different cultures and backgrounds. This can include experience volunteering with community organizations, traveling or studying abroad, or working in a diverse team.

Tailor your resume to the job

Research the company and the position you are applying for and tailor your resume to match their needs. Highlight the skills and experiences that are most relevant to the job.

Showcase your transferable skills

Focus on highlighting your transferable skills and experience. For example, if you have experience working in a customer service role, you can showcase how that experience can transfer to a role in a different industry.

Show your adaptability

Highlight any experience you have working with diverse teams or in multicultural environments. This can help demonstrate your adaptability and willingness to learn.

Showcase your achievements

Highlight any achievements or recognition you have received in your career or personal life that demonstrate your skills and abilities. Whenever possible, quantify your achievements with numbers or percentages. For example, instead of saying you increased sales, you could say you increased sales by 20%.

Use a professional format

Use a clean, professional format that is easy to read. Avoid using too many colors or fonts, and make sure the formatting is consistent throughout the document.

Keep it concise

Your resume should be no longer than two pages. Focus on the most relevant and impressive experiences and skills.

Remember, your diverse background can be a valuable asset in your job search, and there are many ways to demonstrate your commitment to diversity and inclusion beyond formal education or training. By focusing on your transferable skills, cultural competence, achievements, and willingness to learn, you can create an outstanding resume that showcases your unique strengths and experiences.

To showcase your personal diversity on my resume, you can consider highlighting the dimensions you are connected to. For instance, you may emphasize your personal experiences and skills related to your age, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, religion and worldview, ethnical background, social background, physical and mental abilities, among others. By doing so, you can demonstrate your commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion, while showcasing my unique skills and experiences.

Example 1:

As a first-generation immigrant from Mexico, I have firsthand experience navigating cultural differences and language barriers. Through my experiences, I have developed strong communication and interpersonal skills that enable me to work effectively with people from diverse backgrounds. I am fluent in Spanish and English, and I have volunteered as a mentor to young Latinos to encourage their academic success.

In this example, the job seeker highlights their ethnical background and language skills, as well as their experience working with diverse populations. They emphasize their personal experience and the skills they have developed as a result.


Example 2:

As a person with a disability, I understand the importance of creating inclusive spaces that accommodate all individuals. I have experience advocating for disability rights and have volunteered as a peer mentor to support individuals with disabilities in navigating college and career opportunities. Through my personal experiences, I have developed resilience, problem-solving, and teamwork skills that I bring to every workplace.

In this example, the job seeker highlights their experience as a person with a disability and their commitment to promoting disability rights. They emphasize the skills they have developed as a result, as well as their volunteer experience working with individuals with disabilities.


Example 3:

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I am committed to creating inclusive spaces that welcome all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. I have experience volunteering with LGBTQ+ advocacy groups and have organized community events that promote diversity and inclusion. Through my experiences, I have developed strong interpersonal skills and a deep understanding of the importance of representation and visibility for underrepresented communities.

In this example, the job seeker highlights their identity as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and their commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion. They emphasize their volunteer experience and the skills they have developed as a result, as well as their understanding of the importance of representation and visibility.
