Composing the All-Important Cover Letter

The cover letter is where you can make the clearest, most direct case for how you are the most qualified candidate for an academic position. This workshop will introduce you to effective structures and strategies in cover letter writing. Participants will have a chance to look at and discuss sample letters, and do some drafting/revising of their own.

Access the workshop presentation and downloadable materials in Kaltura Mediaspace.
