Q. Can I apply for two positions at the same company?
Don’t simply use the same resume you sent in for the previous job; it needs to be customized to each job you apply for, even if it’s at the same company. Aside from the fact that this is a best practice, different hiring managers may be reviewing applications for different positions. And don’t wait—pursue both jobs today! They may not be available tomorrow.
