How To Create A Cover Letter To Get You Noticed By German Employers
🗓️ January 6, 2022 @ 18:30 CET
During this workshop, I’ll show you how to structure a cover letter using my easy step-by-step process. We’ll cover these items:
1) How to approach the salutation and why this is something unique to Germany.
2) What’s needed in the first paragraph where you tell them why you want to work there, using data you gathered when researching a company and more.
3) What’s needed in the second paragraph where you tell them about how you’re uniquely qualified for that position, using points from the job description, backing that up with examples drawing from your experiences, interests, and more.
4) How to close the cover letter.
By the end of the session, you’ll be able to use this process to create personalized cover letters for all of your job applications. Not only that, you’ll know how to create a cover letter that stands apart from others and gets employers to contact you for interviews. We’ll also leave time for Q & A where you can ask questions about moving to and/or finding work in Germany.
