Will you be on the job market in the next few years? Summer is a great time to start preparing your materials and get feedback on drafts. Even if you haven't written a cover letter before, in the first half of this session we'll discuss the basics of structure and formatting and how to tailor the letter for different institutions. In the (optional) second half, you'll have the opportunity to work on, edit, and ask questions about your cover letter.

This session is for graduate students and postdocs, regardless of year. Registration required in CareerConnections. This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral Services, The Graduate School, the Career Center, and the Office of Biomedical Graduate Education.
