Cover letter - do’s and don’ts

Cover letter - do’s and don’ts
For students and newly graduates only. 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.

Bring your cover letter to the workshop and be ready for feedback in groups. During this seminar you’ll get concrete tips and knowledge about how to write a good application and on what information you should be looking for.
