Description: 

They say that a good cover letter can be the difference between a search committee reading your resume or throwing it into the "no" pile. This workshop will use examples of successful cover letters and a series of exercises to inspire job seekers to write cover letters that showcase their skills and enthusiasm, and help their applications rise to the top. Feel free to bring copies of job postings and cover letters that you have used in the past.
