    Cover Letters That Open Doors

    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 no one wants to read.

    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.

    About Georgia Adamson:

    Georgia Adamson, NCRW, NCOPE, CERM, owner of A Successful Career, has been creating resumes and cover letters since the Dark Ages. At least, that’s how it sometimes feels to her! The up-side of her longevity in the careers industry is that she has had ample opportunity to learn a lot about what works well and what doesn’t. Her clients reap the benefit of this extensive experience.

    As a former English teacher and executive assistant, Georgia has always focused on producing quality work—accurate, clear communications that serve a useful purpose. Since founding her resume-writing business in 1993, she has partnered with a diverse range of clients—now mostly senior managers and executives. However, her goal hasn’t changed: To make sure clients’ career-marketing tools compellingly present them to potential employers.
