6 Key Winning Elements in Your Cover Letter that Get You Interviewed

I have changed my job functions and industry many times in my career. Actually almost every time I changed job, my role and industry background changed as well.

I often joke about it that I myself is evolving from cat-5 cable to wifi connected! (sadly laughing at myself in the mirror). Anyway, it is far too often that I cannot sleep at night. So I try to mediate to help my mind to slow down. However, for a guy like me, when I close my eyes, I have tons of ideas that burst out from within that meditation actually create more wishes or projects that I want to do compulsively.
