What does an employer think if I apply for multiple jobs?

That you are hungry.

No, seriously, if you're willing to take any job in a company, just to work for "them," HR may like you, it depends on your style.

If you can show skills, show them.

You may have to make multiple resumes, one for each position you are applying for, just as if you were applying for different jobs at different companies.

Department heads will want to see a resume that talks about your skills for that department.

However, keep in mind that once you are employed in a company that has multiple departments aware of you ... promotions, cross training teacher, emergency additional employee

You opened the door.

I am a freelancer who has worked many jobs,

At a Christmas party, a bit drunk, I talk about my MAC computer system at home and what it could do. The owner of the newspaper was behind me.

We made a bet.

Six months later, the owner changed the entire composition department to a MAC computer system. Now he was also an IT technician and photo editor for 6 newspapers.

About a year later, I make the wet darkroom semi-digital. We still shoot 35mm black and white film. But I would scan the negatives and after editing / cropping / adjusting the images would be printed on a laser printer.

So if you open your mouth about the talent, you are likely to win at some point.

But beware, jealousy is everywhere ... and it bites!

Thanks for the A2A.

If you are new to the company, several hiring managers are expected to evaluate you for potential jobs. Your resume, if it was submitted for resume, is available to two of the hiring managers. HR staff will routinely try to match your complications with all existing jobs. However, there is a presumption that your first choice will be the hiring manager you went to. If multiple hiring managers are interested, they will generally negotiate backwards, away from your notice.

In my Pinyan, there is no problem in applying for several jobs in the same company.

From my point of view, from my point of view, employers expect multiple companies to apply for various positions. This is an assumed and presumed situation for applicants.

The short answer: it depends on the employer and the type of job.
Some employers would be unconvincing or even expect you to apply for multiple positions based on similar skills and knowledge. These companies understand that you really want to work for the company. If you get an interview, or even a screening call, make your intentions clear. Indicate that you want to put your foot in the door and continue to grow with the firm. Be prepared to show that you know about the company and are motivated by it in some way (e.g. interesting issues, social conscience, etc.)

Recruiters from other companies may be rejected

Recruiters from other companies may feel repelled by this approach. they want candidates interested in a position. They may want to hire someone with specialized experience. That way, the new hire can make an immediate contribution. If you can't cite 2 or 3 reasons why you really want to work for a company and you just want a job, choose the vacancy for which you have the most experience or aptitude and apply for that position.
Thanks for the A2A, Mike

Applying for multiple jobs at the same company can be strange if the person hiring is the same. It would seem that you are not sure what you want to do in your life if the jobs are very different from each other. If the jobs are similar, it should be fine. But, if it is the same person hiring, it is worth mentioning that you like this "area" of work and would love to work for this "company" and that combination led you to apply for these two / three jobs.

There is nothing wrong with applying for multiple jobs. No employer in their right mind will object to you doing that. In fact, I would take it as a sign of a lack of initiative if I found out that an applicant is applying for one job at a time and waiting for a response before applying for another job.

However, I would not recommend applying for any job that you do not feel qualified for or any job that you do not think you would enjoy. Life is too short to carry a job you are unfit for.

I would apply to all of them UNLESS of course they are with the same hiring manager.

For example, I would not apply for the position of "business analyst" and "senior business analyst" if the job description is similar, because I can see that it is the "same group". So I will apply for high school. (It will probably be the same recruiter and the same hiring manager, they can always get me to the bachelor's level.)

But if the jobs are 'BA - Financial Services' and 'Project Manager - Change Management' and if it suits both, I will definitely apply for both.

But if the jobs are 'BA - Financial Services' and 'Project Manager - Change Management' and if it suits both, I will definitely apply for both.

Your chances of hitting the target are directly proportional to the number of shots you take.

Below is an actual chart I created in Excel just for you - assuming you only have a 10% chance of getting the job, your chances increase the more you apply - they increase to 41% in 5 applications and 99% in 50 applications .

It's usually best to apply for the one you are most interested in and the one for which you are qualified, then tell the hiring representative (not the hiring manager) during the interview appointment, subtly, that you are open to other positions if this would benefit the company more. But you need to emphasize the one job you're interviewing for because the manager you're interviewing doesn't want to know how interested you are in jobs that work for other departments.

Create a cover letter and ask them to review your resume to be considered for whatever position they have available and that you are qualified to fill.

Do not fill out three or five individual applications from the same company, unless they are in different locations.

Otherwise, a well-written cover letter can help you.
