Cover letters are very common in the U.S. and provide you with an opportunity to convey your interest in a position and how you can contribute to the organization's success. In this workshop, you'll discover what employers are really looking for, how to analyze a job description and create a persuasive cover letter. The focus of this session will be on non-faculty positions. Please bring a paper copy of your cover letter draft in order to polish it and get immediate feedback.
