Prepare for the Academic Job Market: Powerful Cover Letters
September 27, 2019 @ 12:45 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 workshop, we will review and analyze samples to understand what makes a cover letter stand out in a good way. You will leave with some concrete strategies you can use to write a letter that will make search committees want to hear more from you.
*Note: Because of space reconfiguration, we are currently unable to host workshops in the ITLAL office. Please take careful note of the location of the workshops you plan to attend. Our staff offices are still in Library 69 and we will continue to hold individual consultations in this space. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
