It sometimes seems like the terms “job,” “occupation,” and “career” mean the same thing. A job is a regular activity that is performed in exchange for a payment. Let us look at some examples to make this idea clear for you. A vendor selling fruits is doing his job, while a biochemist working at a pharmaceutical company is doing his job.

After you have researched your company and identified possible next moves, you want to make yourself an attractive candidate. One of the benefits of a lateral move is that it’s not a full-blown job search. You probably won’t need a resume since you’re already in the company. You may not need as many interviews because enough people might already know you. However, you may need a resume and a series of interviews, especially if the move you’re hoping to make is to a different location or to a very different group. In addition, your manager’s recommendation or other review of your performance may come into play. Similar to an external job search, you want to get all of your material together and be prepared to interview. You still need to be job-search ready for a … Read more
