Congratulations to Our First Scholarship Winner!

ZipRecruiter is proud to announce the winner of our First Creative Cover Letter Challenge! After carefully reviewing all entries, our judges decided on one that truly took cover-letter creativity to the next level.

The winner of our first Cover Letter Challenge is Adrianna Privitera, for her original video cover letter performed in Sign Language!

Adrianna is a full time graduate student at the University of Arizona, where she’s studying American Sign Language. She’s especially passionate about working with deaf children, and helping their families to communicate with them fluently while immersing themselves not only in the language, but the rich culture and community that surrounds it. Her ultimate goal is to work as an Educational Interpreter.

In addition to her full course load and the teacher’s assistant position she is working as a part of her studies, Adrianna also works as a manager at a local restaurant. She’ll be using her scholarship money to put toward her tuition, books, and teaching supplies so she can focus on completing her education.

For her winning submission, Adrianna will be awarded a $1000 scholarship for school.

Congratulations to our winner, and great job to everyone who submitted. If you didn’t already submit, be sure to participate in next month’s scholarship. You can send us your creative cover letter right now!
