PLAN Workshop: Great Cover Letters for Effective Applications

Putting your materials together to apply for jobs and assistantships can be time consuming and confusing, and writing a cover letter might be your last thought. It should not be. Cover letters are a way of setting yourself apart from other applicants and placing your experience and qualifications in a personable context. They can boost your application and help move you from qualified to hired. This workshop outlines the expectations, structure, and purpose of cover letters and gives tips and tricks on writing, editing, and tailoring letters for more impact.
