I’m an engineering student, do I need a cover letter? Yes, your cover letter introduces you to the hiring committee and connects your skills, knowledge and abilities to their open positions. This session will review tips for writing stand out cover letters, as well as provide ample time to work on your cover letter(s). You will get feedback from your peers. Bring your laptop, drafts of letters, and the job announcements you are applying to. A Career Coach is available to answer your questions.

More and more institutions ask for a diversity statement as part of their faculty application package. An effective diversity statement gives a perspective on your past, present, and future aspirations and contributions to promoting equity, inclusion, and diversity in your career. Experienced career coach Urmila Venkatesh, will help you articulate your commitment to inclusion and diversity in your work as a faculty member: through teaching, mentoring, outreach and research. We will look at examples of successful statements and start drafting your own.
When applying to faculty positions, your research statement must convince a hiring committee that your research is timely, important, feasible and fundable. Dr. Megan Shields Formato, of the Hume Center for Writing and Speaking, will review examples of successful research statements and lead exercises to help you explain your projects in concise, non-specialist language. This document is required at research-focused, and often also at teaching-focused universities. You will learn about what makes an effective statement and have the opportunity to get started on your own.
One of the written elements often requested for a faculty job application is a "teaching statement." What makes an effective teaching statement? You will review examples of statements from successful job seekers. You will begin to identify the points you want to make and the examples you want to use.
