How do I explain moves within the company?

by Rachelle
(Hillsboro Beach, FL USA)

How do I explain moves within the company that were not promotions but either a department closing and then being moved by my request also? A total of 4 moves in 15 months within the same company. Should I list each department and my supervisor in each department?

Answer: Yes, Rachelle, I would list them the way you say above, factually, in reverse chrono order. But I'd take care to explain in your cover letter WHY you made so many moves in such a short amount of time.
