Your cover letter must briefly and succinctly convey your expertise, experience, and fit to the job search committee. How can you make the most out of this document so that it catches the attention of HR departments? This workshop will deconstruct the cover letter for industry and non-profit job applications, and provide examples of successful ones. This hands-on, interactive workshop is geared towards PhDs and Post Docs who plan on graduating this year. Please bring your laptop and a draft cover letter for a position that you would like to apply to. We will workshop a selection of your letters as a group. This session is facilitated by experts from the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking.
