Careers Beyond Academia

Cover letters are very common in the U.S. and provide you with an opportunity to communicate why you are interested and how you can contribute to the organization's success. In this workshop, you will 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.
