-VIRTUAL: Compelling (and Creative!) Cover Letters Part 1
  3/2/2021   10:00- 11:30 AM
  For Active CTC Clients, Only - No Members Fee, but reservations are required     Reserve here     
    Led by: Jill O'Mahony Stewart, CTC Coach, Communications and Writing Consultant  

Introduction: Session 1 of 2 --Clients should register for and take both sessions (to be eligible for f/up coaching with Jill)

Prerequisite: Must attend CARS workshop prior to this session

This introductory workshop is designed to help clients boost the likelihood that their cover letter will stand out, respond effectively to the job description they are seekeing, and tell their story  quickly and in a compelling way.

The idea is to get to the point, emphasize results, and write clearly and concisely.

If participants can tell their story in such a way that a hiring manager says, "We've got to talk to this person" based on the cover letter, then the workshop is a success!

What Clients Say About This Workshop: 

I love the way that Jill presented the workshop. She modeled in person what she wanted us to get from the workshop. Her style of presenting made the workshop informative and fun.

 Jill's fantastic! I loved the workshop!

Jill's presentation was the best I've attended at CTC ... not that I haven't learned from the rest ... but the information she presented was in an area where I needed fresh ideas and she certainly supplied them. Thank you!
