For a job where I have the actual work experience and not the industry experience (in other words, I’ve done the exact work, but in another industry) … so I’m generally not feeling great about it. This is what makes career changes hard, my friends. Even when you have the experience, if you haven’t been in the actual industry, people don’t want to know you.
Anyway, advice on making it clear that the experience is still applicable without shooting myself in the foot, is certainly welcome.
I am applying to jobs in another state. My partner and I are planning the move. Tentatively, the sooner one of us gets a job, the sooner we’ll move to that state. (In other words, if said job stated “We need you here by June 1 - we would be there by June 1.) If neither of us has a job by August, we’ll likely just move in September or October regardless.
Question: In my cover letter, should I mention the fact that the state in the address on my resume is far away from the state in which I am applying? Or just leave it alone entirely?
shadesofmauve - Yeah that’s the issue, isn’t it? I’m reading “What Color is your Parachute” right now in the hopes of figuring that out. -OR- figuring out how to figure that out. I’ll let you know if I learn anything useful. Please standby.
Few people are as smug as co-workers who just shat in a shared bathroom.
Do you loathe any of your co-workers?
‘I’m looking for something else, anything else,’ she said. ‘More hours. Better pay. Actual benefits.’
