Cover Letters – Communicate Your Value Series

November 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

A successful job search requires that you can effectively communicate your value and how it aligns with the position and/or organization. Each application document you submit or interaction you have presents a unique opportunity for you to highlight your talents.

A CV or resume provides data about a job applicant, while a cover letter conveys your value in a unique story.

During this session, you will:

  • Learn the basic purpose and structure of a cover letter,
  • Learn how to tailor a cover letter to effectively communicate how your career trajectory and aspirations align with those of the organization/role for which you are applying.
