Faculty Job Search Series: Polishing the Academic Cover Letter

Academic cover letters for faculty job applications are a little bit different than your typical industry cover letter. Join us to learn more about this specific document, what it should include, and how you can use it to make an impact. In this workshop, we will go over the document and its typical format, discuss strategies to highlight your skills and accomplishments, and review some examples and address individual questions. To make the most of this workshop, please consider bringing your own academic cover letter draft to share and gather feedback from the group.This CAPD event is open to MIT graduate students, postdocs, and alumni.Please indicate any accommodation needs by completing the following survey: https://airtable.com/shrfsjcovcoDIN0da.Note: Accommodation requests should be submitted one week in advance of an event. If accommodations are not possible due to the late timing of the request, a team member will reach out to you to discuss alternative resources and/or solutions.
