Struggling with your cover letter? Tell your story and stand out

Our stories hold the power to create a connection, illuminate different perspectives, and move people to change. Stories are also one of the best ways to stand out from the sea of applicants and give people a taste of the real you. As LatinX’s and People of Color, I think it’s especially important to use our stories to be authentic in who we are and shine light on how our unique experiences can add to any organization. A cover letter is the perfect place to highlight your professional skills, show some flavor and let hiring managers know you’re perfect for the job.
