Writing Effective Cover Letters: A Shopify Workshop

  • Kitchener Public Library 85 Queen Street North Kitchener (map)

Meet recruiters from the talent acquisition team at Shopify, Canada's leading e-commerce company

Effective Cover Letters

Cover letters are an important part of the job application. They allow you to provide additional information that may not be covered in your resume. Employers are looking to learn who you are, why you are interested in the job, and if you are qualified for the role. A good cover letter can help you land the interview you want.

SO how the heck do you use the cover letter to your advantage?!

  • Join us for a two- hour hands-on workshop where we teach you the elements of a competitive cover letter.

  • Create your own draft and get real time feedback. Leave feeling confident that you can write a high quality and effective cover letter.

  • Have never written a cover letter? Just show up. Learn from our team what you should include and write your first one with us.

  • Have a cover letter already but not sure if it stacks up? Refresh your cover letter expertise and improve your writing skills.

The workshop will be delivered by recruiters from Shopify’s talent acquisition team.
