Cover Letter Strategies

You see the advert..you read with excitement and think “this is the job for me!”

So, the first Career Workshop is only a couple of weeks away (hold your horses – we are still finalizing), but please send your workshop expectations, either through the blog or email – yollyja@gmail.com.
