Applying for multiple
positions at one company
ooking for a job is a job
in and of itself. I do not
know many people who
actually enjoy the pro-
cess of applying for mul-
tiple positions, only to be turned
down or not receive a response
altogether. Couple this angst
with the state of the economy
the past couple of years and you
have many people applying for as
many jobs as possible.
Sometimes out of frustration,
but most times out of despera-
tion, numerous job candidates
have applied for more than one
or two positions with the same
company. Is this strategy of going
for everything you can smart or a
set up for failure?
Here are the top three pros and
cons of applying for numerous
positions within the same com-
1. You in fact may be qualified
for each position that is posted
so why not go for it? Just be-
cause you are qualified for one
position should not negate the
possibilities of being an asset
for another position. You may
increase your odds of being
called back by applying for
more than one position.
2. Applying for more than one
position may positively display
your persistence. If you applied
for one position and did not re-
ceive an interview, applying for
another one which you qualify
for within the same company
has been noted by some HR ex-
ecutives as sign of persistence
and desire on the part of the
3. In larger companies, there
may be two different hiring
managers for the different po-
sitions. While one HR manager
may feel you are not a fit, the
other may be interested in what
you can offer.
1. Rushing. Each resume and
cover letter should be specif-
ically drafted for the position
you are applying for. It has been
noted that some candidates dis-
perse multiple applications and
resumes in such a rushed man-
ner that they fail to specifically
highlight their qualifications for
each individual position.
2. Coming off as desperate.
Some HR managers sense the
desperation of an applicant by
their unappealing cover letter
and lack of necessary qualifi-
cations. It is easy to spot the
candidate who is just “going for
it” as opposed to the candidate
who is perfect for the job.
3. You may start a bidding war
within the company. Compa-
nies do not want friction be-
tween their departments. It has
been suggested that if you focus
on one position and it turns out
to not be a good fit, speak with
your HR department about
moving into another one.

It is easy to spot the
candidate who is just
“going for it” as
opposed to the
candidate who is
perfect for the job.
