Writing a Great Cover Letter 

In this workshop, we're going to talk about the whys and hows of the cover letter. We’ll learn how to use simple tools to create a cover letter – or letter of interest – that stands out and helps you get an interview. 


  • What is the purpose of a cover letter and what will potential employers expect to see? 
  • What goes in the cover letter? What should I avoid? How do I know what to say and what to leave out? 
  • How do I use my cover letter skills to reach out to companies without posted positions?
