Event description

Description

Cover letters are an important way to make a first impression, and can open a lot of doors for a job seeker. Students will learn tips, tricks and key thoughts about crafting a cover letter through various online exercises.

Successful completion of this session includes submision of two peices from the student: (1) a job description for a job that they aspire to, and (2) a cover letter written with that specific job aspired to in mind, using the information learned. Specialists from TCoB Business Career Services will give feedback on each individual student submission in this one-of-a-kind online opportunity. Capacity is limited to 20 participants per session to allow for personalized feedback from career services professionals.

Students will have one week (8 a.m. Monday to 5 p.m. Friday) to complete. It is highly recommended that students plan ahead to allow time for BCS reviews/recommendations, and then re-writes, before the close date/time.

ABOUT THIS EVENT

(1) How do online PDP experiences work?

The PDP office will use your registration information to enroll you in a Canvas “course.” You can expect to receive an invitation to the Canvas experience a few days before the start date. To complete the experience, you will work through steps in a module at your own pace and according to the specific requirements of the online experience (for example, you may be instructed to watch a video, write a reflection paragraph, read an article, watch a lecture, take a quiz or any variety of these). All of the information you need will be included in the Canvas site.

(2) I want to participate in more than one event with this start date. Can I register for all events at once?

Yes. However, each event requires a separate reservation. Open each event individually to access the reservation page for that particular event.

(3) Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You may contact the Professional Development Program at Cornell Hall Room 304 or via e-mail at mubuspdp@missouri.edu.

No. Reservations are non-transferrable. Your reservation is set up for online access ONLY for person whose pawprint Student ID number was entered into the reservation system.

You can also email the PDP office at mubuspdp@missouri.edu and let us know your name, student ID number, start date, and name of the event that you cannot attend and request that we cancel it for you.
