In today's job market, changing jobs periodically is a rule rather than an exception. In fact, the rough estimate is that we change jobs 10-15 times during our professional careers. Long gone are the days when you would graduate from college, settle in a stable job, and retire decades later from the same company.
If you have ever been job hunting, you know how frustrating the application process can be. You spend hours looking for positions and writing customized applications to impress the recruiters and hiring managers. You dedicate all that time and get your hopes up only to receive an automated "thank you, but no thank you" email or, in many cases, no response at all. You feel disappointed because you were so sure that you were the right person for that job.
