Prepare for the Academic Job Market: Effective Cover Letters
October 21 @ 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM
What does your cover letter communicate to a search committee? Will they see you as a potential colleague or as a desperate graduate student? The cover letter is your first interaction with the search committee and will set the tone for future interactions (and may determine whether there are any!). In this interactive workshop, you will learn the key principles of writing an effective cover letter that will impress search committees. You will have an opportunity to begin sketching out a plan for using those principles and be invited to work further on your cover letter with an ITLAL consultant.
