Create an Impactful Cover Letter in 25 Mins

with our Optimist Instructors

About This Class

Part of the Find a Job You Love Series

A cover letter is a tricky thing. Though we expend enormous amounts of effort on our resume, it is often the cover letter that is first in the hands of employers. And while it is totally normal that we should spend a lot of time on our resumes, it is just as important that you consider how to put together your cover letter so it makes as big an impact as possible.

Before you start writing, ask yourself: Why do I want this job? In truth, we may want to answer, “The paycheck!” And while that’s an understandable motivating factor, there needs to be more to it than that if you want to land a job you love, not just a job that pays the bills. 

Join us in this 25-minute class to gain clarity on what about the role you think you will find fulfilling, how you’ll be able to contribute, and spotlight certain skills or traits of which you’re particularly proud.

Together we will:

  • Explore the differences between a resume and a cover letter.
  • Discover the questions to ask yourself to put your best self forward on paper.
  • Learn tips and tricks to test your cover letter’s readiness.

You can now mix and match our 25-minute classes. Buy any three and save 15%. Add three 25-minute classes to your cart and the discount will be applied at checkout.

While we wish we could clone Simon, science just isn’t quite there yet. That is why we’ve trained our Optimist Instructors to teach our classes. However, our two on-demand courses are taught by Simon – check out Find Your WHY and The Art of Presenting!

We’re glad you asked! Our 60- and 90-minute classes offer: more detail, more connection with your fellow attendees, more activities, and more interaction with our instructors. The 25-minute classes are more lecture-style. They feature more information-per-minute, but the shorter timeframe also means fewer opportunities for active participation.

We know you’re busy and, if you can’t easily spare 60 minutes, we don’t want to deprive you of an opportunity to grow!

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
