Throwing Too Many Darts at the Same Company

by Jason Nemoy

For those that are in transition, you might find yourself expressing interest in several opportunities… for the same organization. A colleague of mine recently applied for 3 roles: Sr. HR Generalist, Recruiter AND HR Manager all within 3 days. My 2 cents (and please collaborate/comment with me on this one), I’m not sure I would have thrown every available dart, even if you feel you might be a “fit”. Just thinking out loud here but the hiring manager on the other end might sense a lack of focus on the applicant’s part, and it may actually hurt the incumbents search efforts a bit. We realize you may be open to all opportunities. Consider pin-pointing your strengths, and your professional focus, and how you communicate your “brand”. Be creative.

Rick is a founding member of Chesapeake Search Partners and Practice Director for the Accounting & Finance Practice, facilitating all direct-hire and contractual searches within these fields. Rick began his career as a CPA in public/corporate accounting. He joined the recruiting industry in 1993 with The Mergis Group. He then went on to successfully lead the Accounting & Finance Practice for Stephen James Associates. As he continued those efforts throughout his tenure in the industry, he realized there was a lack of support for the demand of a recruiting partner in these industries within the Baltimore/DC market.
