The course will focus on business e-mail, resume and cover letter basics, researching career options, searching online job sites, and filling out online job applications.

"How to Create the Perfect Cover Letter" will be offered from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 29. Register beginning April 7.

Human resource management consultant Tom Hovany will show you how to create cover letters that will get results.
