OD Facebook Live with Julia Yarbough on “Crafting a Winning Cover/Motivation Letter”

Opportunity Desk (OD) is pleased to have Julia Yarbough accept to host a Facebook Live session for October 2017. Writing a smart cover letter can give you the chance of being more successful in an application, even if you have a weak CV/resume. Whether you are applying for a job, fellowship, grant or scholarship, a cover letter is typically a one-page document that explains why you are an ideal candidate.

This month, Julia Yarbough from the United States will join us to speak on “Crafting a Winning Cover/Motivation Letter.” This session  will help you write the best letter possible. The #ODLive monthly series is part of our efforts to empower our users with the right knowledge and tips they need to grow and succeed in their businesses, projects and applications for global opportunities.
