AU Career PhD & JR

In this webinar, you will learn some guidelines for writing effective cover letters. Having a good cover letter is integral to a strong job application, but it can be very difficult. We will discuss cover letter structure, how to “show it don’t tell it", which formulations to avoid and all the do’s and don’ts. 

The webinar is estimated to take 1 hour incl. 15 minutes for questions.

Please note that this event does not provide access to credit transfer of ECTS points.
