STLC 115 - Science Teaching and Learning Center (Old Chemistry) Science Teaching and Learning Center (Old Chemistry) 376 Lomita Dr, Stanford, California 94305

The cover letter introduces you to the committee and connects your accomplishments to their job announcement. In this session we will briefly review tips for writing cover letters, and then you will be able to work on your actual cover letters. You will get feedback from career coaches and from peers. Bring your laptop, drafts of letters, and the job announcements you are responding to. Sign up for each of the eight sessions SEPARATELY. If you attend at least seven sessions of the entire series, then you will receive a free copy of the "Academic Job Search Handbook." If one or more sessions are not of interest, you are not obligated to attend them, although we think you will learn at all of them. BEAM will also be hosting "Co-Working Sessions for Academic Job Materials" starting in late July. Search for these sessions in Handshake. Co-working sessions are time for peer review and working together on your materials.
