About a month ago, I applied to a job that seemed like a very good match for me at a company I wanted to work for. I got a response back from a recruiter saying that they filled that role internally, but would I be interested in interviewing for another similar role. Of course, I said yes and I had a phone interview with the recruiter a few days later. Unfortunately, the recruiter contacted me a few days later to inform me that they restructured the role and I would probably be overqualified for it now. The recruiter encouraged me to keep applying for opportunities at the company that matched my skillset.
I recently applied for another role at the company. The role wasn’t quite as good of fit for me as the one I applied to last month, but I was certainly qualified for it. Again, I was contacted by a recruiter (a different one than the first time) and then setup to interview with the hiring managers. The interview went ok, I am not confident that I will ultimately get the job.
In the meantime, the original role that I applied to a month ago that I was told was filled internally, was posted again. I want to a apply to it, but I am unsure if I should because of where I am in the recruitment process for the job I had the interview for. I’m nervous that if I apply for the job again/contact the recruiter, I might be jeopardizing the chance I may have for the role I interviewed for. Any advice appreciated!
