Prepare for the Academic Job Market: Powerful Cover Letters
Tuesday, September 26, 2:30-4:00 pm
ITLAL Underground (LI-B69)

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.
