UN/LEARNING SPACE: Cover Letter Workshop with Fatoş Üstek
8 April, 2021 (Thursday), 6:30-8 pm
To kick start the UN/LEARNING Workshop series, Fatoş Üstek will use her expertise to advise on cover letter writing for job applications. It will provide a methodology and an overview into outlining, preparing and proofing cover letters for applications.
