Goethe Pop Up Seattle

Many students are looking for career opportunities in Germany. And many professionals are interested in experiencing what Germany has to offer as a work or research destination. Goethe Pop Up Seattle’s workshop series, organized and lead by Dominik Winkel, DAAD Visiting Lecturer, and Dominik Alamanni, graduate student at the University of Washington, addresses these issues and others. It also aims at strengthening the grassroots bonds of the transatlantic partnership.

How should a cover letter be started? What content is absolutely necessary and what may be less important on a CV? Is it too long or too short? Is everyone properly addressed? Across cultures and languages, the design and writing process of a cover letter varies. In the third workshop, the group discusses the differences between German and US-American cover letters. This does not only apply to the format, but to content and discourse as well. In addition, the group creates a list of useful phrases and words to boost applications.
