Sent Two Separate Resumes to Same Company, Bad?


Dear Experts,

I have been customizing every resume I send to out to match specific job descriptions. I just found out I sent two different resume versions to the same company. Do you think they’ll disqualify me once they notice what I’ve done?

Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:

@kgrantcareers Q#165 No u would not be disqualified. As long as your mainstays r consistant – job title, dates, company worked – u r good.

@heatherhuhmanQ#165 Quality matters over quantity when it comes to your job search. Draft a plan & share it w/your parents.

@jtodonnell Q#165 Doubt they’ll notice, BUT if they do, explain each is valid & meant to show your strengths for each job.

@juliaerickson Q#165 Big place may not notice; sml place cd think u updated rez; if interviewd, b prep 2 ans Q re signif diff.

@heatherhuhmanQ#165 Agree w/other experts, but be careful not to appear unfocused in your job search. (Know what you want!)

@gradversity Q#165 Yes, if they catch it. However, they may not even notice given the volume of applications that employers get.

@DebraWheatman Q#165 Depends. R U qualified for both positions? Possible that they might not notice. They might consider u for either.
