Dear Experts, I applied for a position with a company a few months ago but never received a response of any kind. A new position is available I feel is an even better fit for me. Should I apply again? Should I assume they were not interested? How can I get their attention this time? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#249 Do it right this time. :-) Seriously, how do you know they ever got your 1st app if U never followed up? (@beneubanks) Q#249 Yes. Apply again. Make sure resume is targeted to position and coveys UR value to org clearly and boldly. (@dawnbugni) Q#249 Go ahead an apply again. This time, follow up with a phone call (preferable) or email. (@gradversity) Q#249 Use coverletter to convey why you hope to keep applying until hired. Share passion for what they do.
