Cover Letter
« on: November 19, 2018, 12:59:21 PM »
Hi everyone, I have questions regarding cover letters.

What are important points to include in them, how long should they be, and should you mention who can provide references, or wait until they ask for them? All of my prior jobs (and my wife's) have been word-of-mouth or through applications specific to my field (medicine).

Any advice from physicians with experience in applying for jobs after residency/fellowship is especially appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Abe,

Check out the Ask A Manager blog. She has some excellent advice for crafting the perfect cover letter and many other interesting work-related topics.

Edit way after the fact because I misspelled Manager. Wow.
