MFin Career Question of the Week: Can I apply to multiple roles at the same company? 

Can I apply to multiple roles at the same company? 

It depends on the company. Some companies will allow you to apply for multiple positions or office locations at their company, while others will not – this is generally communicated on the application itself. If multiple roles interest you and you have the ability to apply, we encourage you to do so! Your skills and interests are likely to align with multiple roles, and it is not viewed negatively by employers if they see candidates applying for multiple positions, as long as there is consistency across the desired skills and the company’s recruiting process welcomes this. However, we’d ask you to thoughtfully think through if you were to apply for multiple roles that did not share a skillset. We encourage you to book a small group or individual career advising appointment should you desire to discuss this topic in more detail.
