Center for the Humanities, University Club Building, Room 313, 432 E. Campus Mall
Monday, November 13, 2023
11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
This two-part workshop, in partnership with the UW-Madison Writing Center, will focus on writing cover letters for job positions in the public humanities. Together we will walk through sample job descriptions, unpack strategies for translating academic experience to non-academic positions, and review approaches for writing clear and effective cover letters. Students will have the opportunity to practice identifying key language in postings, review sample letters, and learn about new resources.
