Are cover letters still important? Absolutely! Some employers have even told us that they won’t consider an application if a cover letter isn’t attached. It’s your first chance to demonstrate to a hiring manager that you’re serious about the position and showcase why you’re a good fit for the job.

Sounds like a lot of pressure, right? But writing a cover letter doesn’t have to be scary. In our recent QuickSkills Workshop, we walk you through the steps of how to craft an exceptional cover letter using the job description as your guide.

The example job descriptions and cover letters used with this presentation can be accessed here.

This workshop was brought to you in partnership with the North Star STEM Alliance . We strongly encourage you to check out their website for more resources and STEM opportunities.
