Career Connect: Cover Letter Workshop

Thursday, Apr 20, 2017
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
E25-401
Your cover letter is the first impression you make on a prospective employer, so you want to make the best one possible. This workshop will give you the tools you need to assess job postings and tailor your cover letters so that you and your qualifications stand out from the crowd. We will first discuss principles of writing cover letters for American employers, common problems and pitfalls. Then, you will work on writing your own cover letter and receive feedback. Please bring a draft of a cover letter and something you can write with (be that paper and pencil, a laptop, or a tablet). Also, please bring at least two job postings to which you are thinking of applying. Speaker: Rebecca Thorndike-Breeze
