Should I apply for the same job twice?
If you truly think you’ve got the right skills for the job – or perhaps you’re the right cultural fit for the company but would be better suited in another role – then by all means get in touch with the recruiter and try again. Fact is, you can apply for the same job twice, as long as you’re careful about it.
Can I reapply to a job?
The job market is much the same. And one common question that job seekers have is: Is it okay to reapply for a position with a company after being rejected? The answer, in short, is: Yes! A rejection shouldn’t deter you from giving it another go, even when it comes to a company that previously rejected you.
Is it okay to resend a resume?
The longer you wait to send through a correction, the greater the chance that someone will look at your “old resume” and take it as the real one. If you do send it after this point you can still change the employer’s mind but it’s harder to sell yourself when they have already made a decision on your application.
Does a cover letter have to be 1 page?
Do Be Concise: Cover letters should be one page long and divided into three to four paragraphs. The first paragraph should indicate the reason you are writing and how you heard about the position. Include attention grabbing, yet professional, information.
Can you send your resume twice?
Yes, definitely send your application/resume to the company again, but please make sure you give it a healthy amount of time before doing so. If absolutely nothing is sent your way after two weeks then go ahead, and send an application, resume, or email them again.
