Download to my calendar
They say that a good cover letter can be the difference between a hiring manager reading your resume or throwing it into the "no" pile. In this workshop panelists who were hired within six months of graduation after extensive national job hunts will share how they learned to write cover letters that lead to interviews. Participants should bring a copy of a job posting and a draft of their cover letter. After a brief introduction, they will break into groups and critique each others' letters with the goal of writing cover letters that will help their application rise to the top.
