"Cover Letters and Professional Communication"
Each of your professional documents has a different role in the job search and application processes. Too often the cover letter is written as a summary of one’s CV or résumé, but this is not the best strategy for crafting this document. Gain insights and effective tips for writing cover letters, outreach emails, and strategic thank you notes. Learn about content to write and various formats. This session will be a mix of knowledge acquisition and practice. Please feel free to bring your technology to take notes and/or to revise existing documents.
>>Session II: 2:15-3:00 PM
Doctorates go many places. They're in academia, government, non-profits, industry. They're on the faculty track and off it. They use their skills, their knowledge, their agile minds, their expertise. They're happy. They're successful. They feel rewarded by what they're doing. But how did they get there? Versatile PhD is a resource that helps you answer that question. Learn how to navigate Versatile PhD and benefit from the career content it contains.
