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.
