Job Applications for Creatives: Nailing the Cover Letter and Key Selection Criteria


Ingrid Martin Headshot

Job applications are part science and part art. Nailing an application that tells a compelling story about you and your skills can be frustrating if you don’t have a framework. And how do you demonstrate experience if this is your first role? That whole “I need the job to get experience doing the job” dilemma.  Join conductor, entrepreneur and educator Ingrid Martin (Conducting Artistry) for a special session on job applications.
The session will cover topics including:

  • writing cover letters that demonstrate you are a great fit for the job
  • addressing Key Selection Criteria even if you don’t have the exact skills they’re asking for
  • translating and transposing your creative and artistic skills to work in any area
