Yoy won't get an interview if you simply apply online - cover letter or not. You'll need a referral.

I just look back at production and miss it. I miss so much about it. I kind of hate having to be creative all the time? Problem is I’m in my 30s now and I forget everything about POs and excel spreadsheets. How do I get back?
