        Presented by Georgia Adamson, NCRW, NCOPE, MRW, ACRW, CERM, CPRW, CJSS 

        Friday, February 21, 2020

        12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., ET

        Cover letters deserve more careful attention than they sometimes get. Writers who want to serve their clients well tend to look for ways to make their cover letters deliver maximum impact and value.

        In this webinar, Georgia will share ideas about an approach that aims to achieve that goal and has delivered encouraging results.

        In this presentation you will learn how to:
        • Engage employer interest and keep their attention.
        • Build a story around your client's value and its importance to employers.
        • Avoid mistakes that result in letters that no one wants to read.

              Register Now!

              This one-hour webinar is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. It will be recorded and distributed to all participants. Eligible for 1 CEU.

However, her goal hasn’t changed: to make sure clients’ career-marketing tools compellingly present them to potential employers.
