Cover letter – do’s and don’ts


Your first step towards a job is to slip through the needle eye of being called to an interview.

It takes an application, that stands out and one that is targeted the specific job. The challenge is that your application must be concrete and personal. This require you to spend time on research, because most often the job post doesn’t give you enough information to work with.

During this workshop you’ll get concrete tips and knowledge about how to write a good application and on what information you should be looking for.

The workshop will be facilitated by career adviser Sanne Mattebjerg, and it will be a mixture of instructions and exercises based on your own material. There will also be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Sanne will not give individual feedback on applications.

Please prepare for the workshop by finding a job you would like to apply for and do the necessary research beforehand, e.g. by calling them and asking relevant questions about the job.

Please bring your computer.

If you have signed up for the workshop, but are unable to attend, please remember to cancel so someone else can get your seat. If you don’t attend and haven’t cancelled, we will charge you with a no-show fee.
