There’s no such thing as a “job for life” anymore. Most of us use the power of the internet, references, and recommendations to stay very mobile in our careers. Whether you’re making a sideways move, taking a step up the career ladder, or applying for another role, your cover letter makes a big difference to getting your foot in the door.
The days of spending our working lives in one company are behind us. Technology advances, competitive business, and expanding consumer choice means if you want the perfect career, you’ll need to move between organizations. With the right education, experience, and expertise, you can often find big improvements in salary, benefits, and job satisfaction.
