On Saturday, January 18 from 2:30 to 4:30 pm, education consultant Abby Remer will lead a cover letter writing workshop at the West Tisbury library. According to a press release, you can learn how to nail that interview for the job of your dreams. Most employers spend less than 60 seconds looking at someone’s resume — so it’s the killer cover letter that will get you in the door. Learn how to discern what will make you stand out from the crowd and the best way to “sell” yourself by telling the employer what you can bring to the organization that’s special that no one else can do.
Please bring a laptop, if possible, and assorted job postings to the workshop (whether you intend to apply or not) to get hands-on practice. Sign up is required. Please contact the library to reserve your space: 508-693-3366. This event is free and open to the public.
