Transfer JobsDo you love your company, but not your job? Are you moving, but would really like to continue working for your current employer? Companies want to keep good employees, and if you're interested in transferring, checking out what options are available with your current employer can make good sense.

When applying for an internal job, it's important to spend time on your job application, just as you would for an external application. Your resume and cover letter should be customized to fit the jobs for which you are applying.

You should, whenever possible, line up references from within the company who can attest to your qualifications. You will need to ace the interview. You will also need to figure out the best way to tell your boss that you are interested in moving on.

Here's information on how to apply for a job with your employer, including transfers, promotions, how to find open jobs, getting references, interviewing and following up after the interview.

Hi Alison,

I just read in “The Hill” news that an extension for UI was written into the 2014 budget. Can you tell me when all of this would go into effect?

Thank you,
