Teen Workshop: Writing Your Cover Letter

with Desirée Brown

Writing a cover letter can be nerve-wracking, confusing, and overall unpleasant! But writer and professor Desiree Brown has an easy process to discovering exactly what an employer is looking for and expressing yourself thoroughly and professionally on paper. While this workshop is geared toward teens, we encourage young adults (18 - 27 years old) to join us in this informative, interactive workshop.
