CHELMSFORD – Class of 2022 graduates Olivia Pellegrino and Allie LoCoco have been named this year’s recipients of Chelmsford Schools Board scholarships, the council’s scholarship committee announced at its quarterly meeting on May 18.

The scholarships are presented to two seniors who best describe in essay form which Chelmsford Public Schools staff member has had the most profound impact on their lives. Essays are judged by the scholarship committee and recipients are invited to the spring board meeting to read their essays aloud to their mentors.

Pellegrino and LoCoco will receive $1,000 scholarships.

Pellegrino submitted a moving essay about Katherine Hill, a science teacher at McCarthy Middle School, who Pellegrino wrote was instrumental in helping him break free from his anxiety issues. Pellegrino described her mental health issues, particularly in grades 7 and 8, the years she was a member of Hill’s classes.

“I think it’s that she understood me,” Pellegrino said. “Not everyone understands me. She always took the time to get to know her students and how they learned best. She did this all day, every day.

Pellegrino graduated on June 4 after earning high honor roll status, served as track and field team captain and a member of the World Languages ​​Honor Society.

“(Hill) was essential in getting me to where I am today,” Pellegrino wrote. “She wouldn’t give up on me, and in turn I learned not to give up on myself, whether in or out of the classroom.”

Pellegrino will attend Westfield State College this fall where she will major in history. She plans to become a teacher.

Pellegrino is the daughter of Michael and Laurie Marry-Pellegrino.

LoCoco, who will pursue a double major in Deaf Studies and Psychology at Holy Cross, hailed the influence of CHS director Steve Murray in his essay. LoCoco, who was born partially deaf, wrote about her desire to learn American Sign Language when transitioning to CHS her freshman year — even though she was exempt from CHS’s world language requirement.

Although ASL is not yet part of the World Languages ​​curriculum, Murray found and approved a three-year online ASL course for LoCoco. Simultaneously, Murray and World Languages ​​staff were adding a third language to the curriculum and factoring in ASL. A student body vote resulted in ASL 1 being added to the curriculum for the 2020-21 academic year, followed by ASL 2 in 2021-22.

“This process took a long time, but (Murray) never gave up,” LoCoco wrote. “At the end of my sophomore year, Mr. Murray invited me to be on the hiring committee for an ASL teacher.”

There are over 125 students enrolled in ASL, either as a world language requirement or as an option. LoCoco said it wouldn’t have been possible without Murray’s leadership.

“He’s one of the most positive and welcoming people I’ve ever met,” LoCoco said. “As the class principal secretary, I was able to work with him and he always had the most positive attitude. I wanted that kind of role model in my life.

In addition to serving as a class officer, LoCoco was the captain of the girls’ soccer team (9-5-5), which qualified for the MIAA division. 1 Tournament, and a sprinter in the indoor and spring athletics teams. Student of the Month for October at Emerson House, she is also on the student panel at Boston Children’s Hospital and is a member of the LOFT leadership program for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.

LoCoco is the daughter of Joe and Karen LoCoco.

Hill and Murray will each receive a check for $100.

“Does anyone have a growth mindset moment to share?”

I asked this question at the beginning of most of my first-year seminary classes last fall.

The project was only a small part of my curriculum and happened by chance. At the beginning of the semester, we discussed the theories behind various mindsets. Much of our discussion has focused on the concept of growth mindset described by Carol Dweck in her landmark book. We compared ideas related to growth mindsets and fixed mindsets, discussing how individuals with growth mindsets overcome challenges while those with fixed mindsets avoid challenges. We talked about how growth-mindset learners don’t give up in the face of obstacles unlike fixed-mindset learners, and the value of effort in their learning. We explained how those with a growth mindset accept and learn from failure as opposed to those with a fixed mindset who cannot handle mistakes (Dweck).

In previous classes, I’ve shared one of Dweck’s Ted Talks outlining his concepts – these are worth watching in class. This year, however, I took a slightly different approach. Since my class focuses on the hero’s journey, I filled slides with images of heroes, anti-heroes, and villains. We then debated whether their favorite characters had a fixed growth or mindset. This led to an engaging discussion about whether Loki gives up in the face of obstacles and whether the Joker learns from the challenges he faces. The students shared compelling insights into whether heroes or villains were more likely to possess a growth mindset.

I originally planned to have students write about how they can maintain a growth mindset as they approach each of their first semester courses, most of which are part of the curriculum. college basics; however, we ran out of time. So I improvised. Instead of writing about how they can maintain a growth mindset, I challenged students to look for growth mindset moments throughout their semester and then be prepared to share them with the class. The mission description indicated that growth mindsets could focus on academic, emotional, or personal growth. It can be related to our class or a different class, any sport, social activity or club. The only stipulation was when to show how the student adopted a growth mindset.

I started each class by asking if the students had any growth moments to share. At first, students were hesitant to share these growth mindset moments. When the room fell silent, I continued. Then I started sharing growth mindset moments from my own life. I talked about lessons learned from walking my dog ​​Finn and how watching my husband coach our son’s baseball team taught me how to move forward despite failure. Photos showing my son and my dog ​​on slides helped bring these moments to life for the students.

Then a hand went up. A student shared her experience of working at a local hospital. A young boy, close to his age, was brought in over the weekend after suffering head trauma. The student told the class how he nearly died, and the experience showed him how precious life was and how quickly it could be taken away, even at a young age – a time of growth.

Slowly, over the next few weeks, other students began to share their own growth mindset moments. Some students shared how failing a math or chemistry test taught them to seek out the college’s free tutoring services. It was the perfect sequence to remind students of the myriad of tutoring offered by our institution. Many students have explained that they were overwhelmed with work from various courses, including my own, and found a planner to help them manage their time and document when assignments needed to be completed.

The students talked about their experiences on various sports teams. A golfer in the class said he tried harder after failing to compete in a golf tournament. Other students spoke of the social challenges college can present. Students described how they learned to stop comparing themselves to others when it comes to academic achievement. One student mentioned that in our class, students get points for participating in class-led discussions, and in doing so, she learned that talking in class isn’t that scary and found a voice to stand up for. express in other classes.

Perhaps my favorite growth mindset moment came in the middle of class. Students were working on research for their signing assignments. After helping a student find an article and encouraging him to Lily the article, he raised his hand. “Can I use this as a growth mindset moment?” He asked. I nodded. The student went on to describe how he had just learned that you should read the sources you plan to use in your research, even if it is difficult. He had never approached research in this way before.

Several students were not comfortable sharing personal information in class, so they emailed me their growth mindset moments. One student talked about the challenges with her family and how they showed her that she needed space and couldn’t be everything to everyone.

Without prompting, many of the topics covered in the Growth Mindset Moments aligned with the topics we cover as part of our “Learn at University” curriculum in the Freshman Seminars. I believe the ideas shared are also aligned with the general principles of learning to be a good human.

Although I never intended to open every class by asking students if they had any growth moments to share, I’m glad I did. Sharing small moments from the lives of my students helped invite dialogues about success in college and in life. The moments challenged students to view their first semesters from a different perspective and to define each obstacle as potential for growth. Pay attention, I told the students, what happens this semester will teach you who you are and how you can get the most out of your college education. Be careful, I told myself, there is always room to grow.


Nickolena Kassolis Herdson is an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Communication and Writing at York College of Pennsylvania. She also teaches in the college’s freshman seminar program.

Understand how and for whom brain training works http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/understand-how-and-for-whom-brain-training-works/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 17:38:00 +0000 http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/understand-how-and-for-whom-brain-training-works/ If you’re good at playing puzzles on your smartphone or tablet, what does that say about the speed at which you learn new puzzles or, more generally, your ability to concentrate, for example, to school or at work?

If you’re good at playing puzzles on your smartphone or tablet, what does that say about the speed at which you learn new puzzles or, more generally, your ability to concentrate, for example, to school or at work? Or, in the language of psychologists, does “near transference” predict “distant transference”?

A team of psychologists from UC Riverside and UC Irvine report in Nature Human behavior that people who show near transference are more likely to show far transference. For someone skilled at playing a game, such as Wordle, quasi-transfer refers to being skilled at similar games, such as a crossword puzzle. An example of distant transference for this person is better concentration in the activities of daily living.

Some people do very well in practice, like playing a video game, but they don’t show close transfer, perhaps because they’re using very specific strategies. For these people, a remote transfer is unlikely. By better understanding why this type of memory training or “intervention” works for some people but not others, we can move forward with a new generation of working memory training games or use approaches more suited to the needs of individuals.


Anja Pahor, First Author, Assistant Research Psychologist at UCR and Project Scientist, Department of Psychology, University of Maribor in Slovenia

The researchers conducted three randomized controlled trials involving nearly 500 participants and replicated the same outcome: the extent to which people improve on untrained tasks, that is, tasks with which they are not familiar (quasi transfer), determines whether the transfer to an abstract reasoning task is successful. By analogy, if a person who runs on a treadmill in the gym (training or intervention) manages to be able to run faster outside (quasi transfer), then this improvement predicts whether this person would be better prepared to engage in other physical activities (far transfer), such as cycling or playing sports.

Whether and to what extent working memory training improves performance on untrained tasks, such as in “fluid intelligence”, the ability to think and reason abstractly and to solve problems, remains a subject. much debated. Some meta-analyses show a small but significant positive effect on fluid intelligence; others argue that there is no evidence that training generalizes to fluid intelligence.

“What excites working memory researchers the most is whether there’s a transfer to fluid intelligence,” said co-author Aaron Seitz, professor of psychology at UCR and director from the UCR Brain Game Center for Mental Fitness and Well-Being. “What we say in our article is simple: if you get a close transfer, you are very likely to get a far transfer as well.

“But not everyone comes close to transferring for a variety of reasons, such as participants disengaging during the training or because that particular training is ineffective for them. These people don’t seem to transfer far.”

Seitz noted that people are constantly being sold brain training games.

“Some studies claim these games work; other studies claim the opposite, making it difficult to interpret the interventions,” he said. “Furthermore, some of these studies have grouped people who show close transference with people who show no close transference. Our article clarifies some of that confusion.”

To dig deeper into these questions, the team has launched a large-scale citizen science project that will engage 30,000 participants in various forms of brain training. The researchers invite anyone over the age of 18 to participate by registering or learning more about their work in progress.

Susanne Jaeggi, UCI Professor of Education and Director of the UCI Working Memory and Plasticity Laboratory and co-author of the research paper, warned that the companies’ claims that their games improve cognitive functions essentials must be carefully assessed.

“Almost everyone has access to an app or plays a game on a computer, and it’s easy to be seduced by the claims of some companies,” she said. “If we can understand how and for whom brain training apps work, we can improve them for more than just fun. Such improved apps would be especially useful for older people and certain patient groups.”

The research was funded by a grant to UCR and UCI from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Mental Health.

MUMBAI: In an effort to reduce stress in the life of a medical student, the BMC-run KEM Hospital in Parel applied for three councilor positions psychologists whose job would be to advise his students.
The announcement, dated June 16, asked for consultant psychologists on a contractual basis and offered a monthly salary of Rs 30,000. Dean of KEM Doctor Sangeeta Ravat said: “A few decades ago, most medical school students were locals. But now over 70% of our students come from outside Mumbai. They are barely 18, far from their parents and in one of the toughest classes. ”
The idea for an advice cell emerged last year, when many postgraduate medical residents were under physical and emotional stress due to Covid duty. Additionally, several college students were convicted for gossip last year.
The counseling cell will be located in the medical school building and will have a discreet entrance so that no student feels stigmatized. “Ideally any student with adjustment/emotional/financial issues should be able to enter the psychiatry department DPObut we found that students don’t feel comfortable with it,” said a senior teacher who did not want to be named.
In addition, the visit to the psychiatric OPD would force them to call their parents. “They might not want to tell their parents they’re depressed because they don’t have enough money to spend,” the teacher said. The counseling cell, on the other hand, will allow them to come in and ask for help.
Apart from the counseling cell, Dr. Ravat also plans to appoint professors of medicine as mentors for the students. “Already 50 teachers have agreed to be mentors,” she said.
While KEM Hospital’s ‘Dosti Student Scheme’ is the first such initiative in the city, AIIMS in Delhi launched student welfare centers a few years ago. Dr. Rajesh Sagar, Professor in Department of Psychiatry, AIIMS Delhi, said the wellness center has specially appointed counselors to assist undergraduate or postgraduate students. “Medical students are particularly vulnerable to stress due to their lifestyles which include long hours in the hospital. Medical residents deal with life-and-death situations on a daily basis and they are away from home and overworked. work,” he said.
International studies have shown that doctors have a 2.5 times higher risk of suicide than the general population. Considering that India is home to 1 million doctors, the number of vulnerable doctors could be high.
Dr Pratima Murthy, director of NIMHANS, Bengaluru, said the institute was working with the Indian Medical Association to set up psychosocial helplines for medical students across the country.

In each course, Dr. Alavi offers the latest methods to increase emotional intelligence and self-awareness

TEHRAN, IRAN, June 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Quoting Ana News Agency’s Bazaar Group, Dr. Yahya Alavi’s Emotional Intelligence Classes have gained huge popularity and grab the attention of all viewers . While considering the history of education in this field in other countries, it can be said that this is indeed the greatest emotional intelligence course across the globe.

Emotional intelligence is a new concept in management and psychology. Interestingly enough, no scientific paper has been published more than those on the subject of emotional intelligence in recent years.

As noted in Daniel Goleman’s books, one of the reasons for applying emotional intelligence in management is to facilitate decision-making based on logic and emotions; because it goes without saying that if a person makes a decision under the influence of unmanaged and unbalanced emotions, they will encounter problems along the way.

Through emotional intelligence testing, 15 types of emotions can be identified, which are then tapped into to make people experience more balanced emotions by avoiding emotional suppression or obsession. َ

According to reports from the National Civil Registry Organization, in the provinces of Tehran, Mazandaran and Alborz, half of marriages end in divorce.

Also, according to the CEO of PCOIRAN, the number of psychological consultations has doubled during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unfortunately, the average age of depression has reached 14, which is a devastating statistic.

In addition, according to official reports from the Ministry of Health and Medical Education, about 27% of middle-aged men and 19% of middle-aged women in Iran suffer from psychological disorders.

With the increase in depression and its symptoms in metropolises and cities, the more people are aware of their emotions, the fewer problems they will encounter. That said, as weforum.org notes, emotional intelligence has a 65% impact on life expectancy.

Emotional intelligence essentially influences the awareness of one’s own emotions and their management, and in turn, the awareness of the emotions of others and the effective establishment of relationships. The importance of emotional intelligence is manifested in the important role it plays in creating positive feelings and its undeniable key role in managing one’s relationships with one’s company, colleagues, superiors, spouse, children , as well as other individuals.

With the acquisition of emotional intelligence techniques, we can master our emotions, improve our emotional intelligence, acquire an accurate recognition of our strengths and weaknesses, acquire a stable level of self-esteem, achieve a more precise definition of responsibility, identify stress triggers that we might encounter on our way, and propose solutions to overcome them.

Dr. Yahya Alavi has conducted the largest and most professional emotional intelligence courses in Iran for the past 12 years, and in each course effort has been made to provide the latest scientific methods and achievements to participants. . Additionally, Aya Business School currently offers Strategic Business Management, one of the most prestigious MBA courses. You can find his section on the site.

When the Peoria area was named the worst area in the country for African Americans by online publication 24/7 Wall St., Jonathan and Nikki Romain took notice.

It was then that the couple decided to take their love for the arts and start a non-profit organization to better the city.

Nikki Romain is the Executive Director of ART Inc. Peoria.

“The arts can truly transcend a child’s life. For my husband and I, it saved our lives. Even if you don’t go into the arts, it can help public speaking, politicians, lawyers, everybody with theater and build that confidence,” Romain said.

ART Inc. opened in 2019 after the Romans bought the old Greeley School and turned it into a center filled with various arts programs for Peoria’s youth.

“It’s our way of having a lasting impact in children’s lives where we don’t have to abandon them. They are not going to ask themselves ‘what would Mr. Romain do?’ “What would Mrs. Nikki do?” Well, now they can come and ask us because we’re here every day. We try to come here during programs, hug and see what happens.

Romain said that because the arts are statistically the first thing to shoot when schools face budget cuts and are costly for many families, ART Inc. Peoria offers a pay-as-you-go system.

“They have a safe space. They are not at home alone or in another program where they are bored to death. They have their friends after school. We give them snacks so they have a meal. These are things they probably wouldn’t get if mom was at work,” Romain said.

Art Inc. Peoria students discover art through theater, dance, visual arts, sewing, knitting, robotics, coding and more through the After School Arts and Leadership program Academy.

ART Inc. students gain experience and learn about art through theater, dance, visual arts, sewing, knitting, robotics, coding and more through the program After School Arts and Leadership Academy. In this program, students also have time spent doing homework with the help of ART Inc. staff.

Although it is not only the after-school program and the summer program that have an impact. ART Inc. hosts an “Empower Our Girls” program where girls ages 11-17 learn about self-care, wellness, and empowerment by listening to weekly speakers.

“So these girls and children not only learn different artistic skills, but they inspire these women who come from all walks of life to pour into them. The mayor came to speak to our children. We took them to Chicago and they were able to talk to Kim Foxx, the state’s attorney,” Romain said.

Program director Joy Holmquist said she enjoys working with children and helping teach various lessons they might not otherwise have the chance to learn, such as learning to play the violin.

“To understand that what we pour into them sooner or later, they will pour into their own community. So if we do positive things with them and help them explore different things…. “Being able to see that and pour into others and work with them inspires me daily,” Holmquist said.

Coriana Carpenter is herself a high school student and a youth leadership teacher at Art Inc. She assists the staff at ART Inc. as they teach various STEM and fine arts courses and run the camp. ‘summer.

“I think it’s important for us to be advocates for the younger generation because they are the future, and we want to satisfy them as much as possible so they can channel their inner creativity and they can have a more innovative transition to the next stages of their lives,” Carpenter said.

DSC_0657.JPG

Coriana Carpenter is a youth leadership teacher at Art Inc. She assists Art Inc staff in teaching various STEM and fine arts courses and leading the summer camp.

Carpenter said she is currently taking various child development and psychology courses which she is applying to her position at Art Inc. After graduating from high school, she hopes to build on her experiences from Art Inc. and become a psychologist.

“My lessons give me a bit more insight when working with children here. So it will be easier when I graduate and move on. I think Art Inc has been truly a blessing to have the experience of working with children and working in a field that I really enjoy without having a degree,” Carpenter said.

William Butts is another ART Inc. student who said he loves Art Inc.’s after-school program and summer camp because of the unique opportunities it has to do that go beyond what is offered at school.

“I like to sew, I like to draw and I like to paint and make candles. These things are really fun and I really enjoy them,” Butts said.

Lyric Yelverton said she had been a student at Art Inc for almost three years. Although her favorite activity at ART Inc. is dance lessons, Yelverton said what sets her apart the most is her teachers and the environment they’ve created for her all these years.

“They just accepted me with open arms and were really nice to me, and I appreciated that,” Yelverton said.

This appreciation goes both ways.

Co-owner Nikki Romain said it’s typical for kids to run around and hug her daily, expressing the joy they feel because of ART Inc.

Romain said a recent story about a student stuck with her:

“Sometimes he has bad days, and the other day Jonathan saw that he was having a bad day, and he went with him to the store across the street, and they were just talking. Then when he came back here he was like, ‘You know what, you’re like a dad because my dad’s in jail and I can’t see him.’ It’s just heartbreaking. But those are the little stories we hear and those are the things we think about at night,” Romain said.

ART Inc’s summer camp program includes different themes each week. If students missed the first week, there are still options to enroll by July 1…when the program ends.

More information on camp registration is available at artincpeoria.org

Celtics engage in Galaxy-Brain psychological warfare ahead of Game 3 of NBA Finals by raising Warriors’ basket height http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/celtics-engage-in-galaxy-brain-psychological-warfare-ahead-of-game-3-of-nba-finals-by-raising-warriors-basket-height/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 00:46:11 +0000 http://www.populerpsikoloji.com/celtics-engage-in-galaxy-brain-psychological-warfare-ahead-of-game-3-of-nba-finals-by-raising-warriors-basket-height/ Noah Graham.

The headline and media above says it all. You can’t tell me someone who works at TD Garden didn’t do this on purpose. I don’t know if the Boston Celtics themselves contributed to it. It could have been a man or a woman who acted alone. In any case, AUDACITY. You can’t help but respect it. This is deep state conspiracy theory subterfuge type stuff. Two inches might not sound like a lot, but those are the professionals we’re talking about here. It’s also not such a massive change that it’s too noticeable. Whoever did this is a fucking genius.

Whether anything out of the ordinary was going to happen before Game 3 of tonight’s NBA Finals, I would have had a verbal altercation on the court between El Pres and Draymond Green as the -120 favorite. Then maybe, perhaps Steph Curry goes through a ridiculous drill where he hits a million punches in a row, even though it wouldn’t be a big shock.

Nothing prepares you for this if you are Golden State. Absolutely brutal. EVEN BETTER: Boston continued to warm up as the Warriors checked to see if the hoop on their side was, in fact, the standard 10 feet above the court. ONLY AFTER THAT did the Celtics players look around and say, “Well, oh shit guys, let’s make sure we’re A-OK here too!!!”

There’s only one appropriate reaction to that from the Warriors side.

Note that Happy Gilmore is even wearing a Warriors jersey in this clip. That’s god damn pop culture reference if I may say so myself – and I will!

Either way, bad vibes are coming tonight. My betting preview today had Dubs up for grabs at +125. Already lit for this shit because let’s face it, CELTICS ARE THE BALLS. Seriously, consider the Moneyline game a mess. This pre-game masterstroke changes everything and threatens to upset the entire course of the 2022 NBA Finals. I can say that I have seen almost everything in professional sports, but this is absolutely a first.

Save your work/portfolio

Have you recorded the syllabus? Save the program! I just received an e-mail from a student who, after the course was closed and no longer able to access the files, asked me: “Hey professor, can you send me the syllabus?”

Not only does it contain your teacher’s contact information, but also, many schools require programs to give you credit for prior coursework. Of course, you will get transcripts, but they only mention the class name and number. Some schools require programs to verify that requirements have been met.

Just this semester, for example, a student from a few years ago emailed me asking for the program because a campus in the state of California wanted to review one of my classes to ensure that it meets its requirements. Luckily, I’m not going anywhere, but you can never guarantee that your teacher will always be there, available, or able to find the file you need among the approximately eight billion lesson plans on their computer. You also don’t know for sure that searching a school’s curriculum repository (all schools should have them by now) will be easy or yield the results you’re looking for.

It seems like every semester a new portfolio-like program (e.g., Portfolio) is added to our learning management system, Canvas. You might feel compelled to use it, but the value of these programs depends on discipline, so be sure to ask. Ask the people doing the work you want to do what they think these programs are useful for, not just those in academia.

I can’t say I’ve heard of many psychology programs or jobs that use any of these programs, except maybe LinkedIn. But gone are the days of keeping plastic storage boxes full of essays and projects. Just save your work. It’s best to save it as you produce it, because who wants to go back and have to find it?

So, as soon as possible, save and organize your important work so you can find and access it later. It’s like trying to convince students to learn the APA format now because they’ll thank me later. As I tell introductory students, trust me, you’ll thank me later.

Update your CV

I’m not going to lie, I hate this one. As someone who always has a million projects, contracts, and jobs going on at once, all of which are worth a resume or CV, I feel your groan when I tell you this. But it must be done. Keep track of your hard work, skills, and accomplishments now, and again, you’ll thank yourself later.

A lot of student advice includes writing a one-page resume. I’m very confident to tell you that in psychology and related fields, two pages is enough if you really, really need the space. The goal is to be clear and concise. This is what we want in psychology. No “word salad”, just the important stuff. Be direct about what you did, where and how it demonstrates your skills.

And please don’t put your GPA on your resume unless the employer or school requesting it requires it. I tell you this after years of watching recruiting teams scoff at “old school” resumes that included GPAs.

My strongest tip about resumes and resumes is to keep an unofficial draft that you update whenever you get a new job, join a new committee, or anything that an employer (or a doctoral school) would like to know. Keep a recording for yourself – you can make it look and sound better later. The goal is to write it now, because however young and mentally fit you may feel right now, you’re going to forget something, especially as the years, work, and accomplishments pile up.

Write a draft cover letter

Guess what? It’s another “you’ll thank yourself later”. Cover letters are simply a way to introduce yourself to an employer and let them know that they consider you a candidate. You may need to do this, or something similar like a goal statement, also for graduate school.

Bearing in mind that I have many degrees and over 20 years of vast and varied experience that requires an ever-evolving battle to keep it short (clear and concise, remember), here’s basically my skeleton:

Hello, I am enthusiastically applying for your position and in a nutshell, you should hire me because I match my education and experience.

Here are the details of my education and how it relates to this position.

Here are the details of my experience and how it relates to this position.

In case it’s not clear (don’t really say it), here are some stronger sentences to wrap up and highlight how my education and experience make me a great candidate.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

But how can you write a cover letter if you don’t have a job to apply for yet? Well, first, find one! Even if it’s not your dream job, find one and apply for it. It’s a good way to practice, write that first draft and also prepare your CV. Consider it a test.

Even if you don’t want to apply or can’t find a job, you can still write a cover letter. Imagine your dream job. Now write to that dream hiring committee. Do.

Warning: if you create a draft or a template that you use over and over again, be sure to read your letters carefully before sending them to real employers. I say this as someone who has graded many assignments with the wrong class name, “insert XYZ here”, etc.

To have courage

It’s so commonplace to tell someone to have courage, but I really mean it. This stuff is scary. It’s just. It feels big and sometimes insurmountable. It’s a step into a whole other world than the one you’ve been used to. I understand. It’s a lot.

Breathe. You don’t have to do everything today. In fact, you don’t have to do anything. Knowing this, do what you can. Take one step at a time and watch yourself progress to heights you never imagined…or maybe you did. You deserve it. Congratulations, graduate!
