    Default time adverb(ial)

    Keep in otuch with an organisation where you wan to work,even if there's no vacancy at the time you're looking.

    I would like to replace the underlined time adverb(ial) with other choices as below,

    1) at the moment
    2) at this point.

    Do they make any difference?

    at the time refers to the time in the future when you're looking for a job, whereas at the moment and at this time , in that context, both refer to now.

    All the best, :D
