Wednesday Walk-In Workshop at the Writing Center: Writing Your Cover Letter

Posted on 11/9/2018 1:52:21 PM

The Jones White Writing Center will offer IUP students the opportunity to get help with writing a cover letter at the Wednesday Workshop that will be held on November 14 at 7:00 p.m. in 218 Eicher Hall.

Cover letters are a key component of applying to jobs, internships, or graduate schools, so students need to understand how to write a clear cover letter.

To help students better understand cover letter writing, the workshop hosted by the Jones White Writing Center will present on the purpose of cover letters, the parts of cover letters, and techniques for approaching the writing of cover letters. Sample cover letters will be provided so students can learn cover letter genre conventions such as standard formats, openings, and closings. For career specific or content advice, students should visit the Career and Professional Development Center.

Every Wednesday Workshop is open to all IUP students and is about an hour long. Attendance vouchers will be available for students.
