If there are multiple job postings on a company's website that are relevant to your interests, does it look bad to apply to all of them?

Applying to multiple job postings on a company’s website is totally fine. However, be aware of the jobs you are applying for and make sure that they are positions that you are interested in and qualified for. If you are applying to positions across multiple functions or levels, it may confuse the person looking through the applications, so applying to jobs that align with your previous work experience and any school work you completed while in school will help make your application stand out when recruiters are looking through applicants. Good luck!

Online application systems have made it faster and easier than ever to apply to multiple positions with a quick click of a mouse. However, just because you can apply for multiple positions, doesn’t mean you that you should.
Recruiters and hiring managers want to hire people who have skills sets that are somewhat tailored specifically to their positions. They are interested in people who they think will enjoy and excel in the position as well as stay happily in the role for a decent period of time. Applying to multiple positions at a single company usually gives the impression that you blindly applying for anything you can find and that you are not truly vested in single position for which you are being considered. To put it bluntly, it makes an applicant appear to be unfocused and unprofessional.
My advice is to narrow down the number of positions to which you apply to 1-3 roles. When submitting applications, be sure to include a thoughtful cover letter to accompany each of the submissions explaining why you feel that specific position is a good match to your skills.

Good question!  As long as your skills and experience align with the requirements of the position, it is absolutely appropriate for you to apply to any openings of interest.  Bottom line?  A recruiter or hiring manager is always appreciative of qualified applicants, so if a position or positions match your interest and skills - apply away!

It is fine to apply to multiple positions at the same company.  Depending on the size of the company, there may be several different recruiters and hiring managers, so do not assume that when you apply to one position, that all decision makers will see your information.  Recruiters work hard to share candidate information, but when hiring volumes are high, this can be difficult.  The only time I would caution against applying for multiple positions at the same time is once you are an employee at a company and are responding to internal job positings at that company.  Recruiters and hiring managers will begin to notice this and ask questions as to why you have not been selected.  But when apply from the outisde, this is fine.
