Your cover letter must briefly and succinctly convey your expertise, experience, and fit to the job search committee. This workshop will review content, deconstructing the purpose and elements of a cover letter for applications to jobs outside of academia. We will then share drafts to get feedback on revisions. Please bring a job description for a position that you would like to apply to, as well as 3 copies of the draft cover letter and 3 copies of the draft resume that would comprise your job application. Alternately, you can email the job description, your draft resume and cover letter the day before the workshop to urmilav@stanford.edu.
