According to employers, job applicants who write persuasive cover letters can surge ahead in the competition for interviews. Cover letters are your opportunity to expand on the information in your resume, tell your story for an employer in a way that makes it explicit how and why you would add value to their organization, and illustrate your communication and persuasion skills all at once. In this workshop you will learn a powerful structure for your cover letters and how to make explicit the fit between what you bring and what the employer wants.
