Most cover letters are formulaic and boring. Applicants are too afraid of offending to risk standing out. And in an era of automated screening, one can legitimately ask: Do cover letters even matter?

This seminar offers reasons why standing out in a crowded labor market is more necessary than ever. Attendees will gain insights on the roles and goals of a good cover letter and how to use audience insight to showcase themselves to greatest effect. Through analysis of cover letters that worked, they will come to a fresh understanding of pitching strategy and learn to distinguish elegant flourishes from cheap gimmicks. The workshop will demonstrate the core principles of persuasive writing to help applicants attune themselves successfully to a range of readers and provide them with a framework for taking calculated risks in their professional prose as they seek employment.
