April 23 | 6 – 7:30 PM | San Diego Natural History Museum
Join us for a hands-on workshop! Crafting a compelling, tailored cover letter can be challenging, but the San Diego Emerging Museum Professionals are here to help! In this hands-on workshop, you’ll get pragmatic, professional writing advice that you can apply to your own cover letter. Over the course of an hour and a half, you’ll learn characteristics of successful cover letters and work in groups to understand what makes a cover letter stand out for the right reasons. You will leave with tools to help you effectively communicate why you are the best candidate for your desired job.
Dr. Steve Merriam will facilitate the workshop. Dr. Merriam has served as Interim Director of the Professional Writing Program in SDSU’s Department of Rhetoric and Writing Studies, and currently directs the university’s undergraduate Business Communication program. Dr. Merriam teaches graduate courses in professional writing at SDSU and UCSD Extension, specializing in corporate and foundation grant writing for nonprofits.
