    i'd say yes
    hard to say what they're looking for.. just be straightforward and honest.. but if there's something in your backgroud that makes you stand out from the middle-to-upperclass-white-male demographic they probably see the most then definitely put that
    as in: definitely mention if you aren't white and/or not male
    or american lol

    Isn't that kind of weird to mention? Like I mean I'm not white or male.
    Cody Loyd
    @codyloyd

    that's specifically what they're asking for though:

    a diversity of perspectives, ideas, and cultures

    and yes it does seem a little weird

    I know google wrote " We especially encourage applications from students underrepresented in the engineering and tech industry including women, Black, Latinx, Hispanic, Native American, Veteran and students with disabilities" on the application page...but I just kind inferred they'd just kinda know from name maybe?

    @codyloyd
    haha maybe

    I dont know. I don't see how I would neatly weave in that sort of information since I haven't experienced any sort of discrimination or any sort of thing like that personally.
    I guess I'll just stick with my original idea.

    good luck lol.. I'm certainly no expert on anything not-white-male :grimacing: so it's even a little weird for me to try to give advice on it.
    and I honestly don't really know what they're looking for.

    Fair enough. Thanks for responding still.

    Maybe you could tell them your non binary / gender non conforming
    I bet they don't have many people in that category. And if they want diversity, they'll need at least one!
    Hopefully they don't make you wear a hat that has that label though

    Hi every one my name is Rogelio and I am trying to get in to front end development. I have been studing for a while and I have made two websites for a client but I need to make more websites to get better. I want to postulate as junior developer but the sites I want to postulate ask for a "cv"or "Resume". I try to make one but I really dont know how to make it at least aceptable. any advise or help. Thanks

    Is there a certain kind of resume or cover letter that worked best to get an interview for anyone?
    Cody Loyd
    @codyloyd
    your absolute best bet is to get out and meet people personally
    i never submitted a resume/cover letter to the actual job I have now.. I just met the guy that was hiring
    Deepak Birdi
    @dbzguy56
    Ok, did you go to alot of tech meetups or network events?
    Did you go to those events just for networking or enjoying the event as well
    Cody Loyd
    @codyloyd
    i went to a few meetups
    i ended up meeting the guy ina chatroom for a local meetup
    Deepak Birdi
    @dbzguy56

    @codyloyd
    it is useful
    even if you aren't just advertising yourself.. just let it be generally known that you're looking for a job and you might meet someone that knows someone etc.

    @dbzguy56
    Ok I think I found a good event for tomorrow
