I was interested in working at a company that was offering two different positions. The positions were not the same but had some similarities. I was interested in both positions. In each advertisement they advised a different email address to apply.
Since I could not make up my mind and both looked good to me, I send the application and explained in the intro of my letter that I am interested in both applications and would be glad if I could apply for both. I set as recipients of the email both email addressed that were different and stated differently in both advertisements.
The next morning one of the HR persons of one of the positions contacted me and asked me which of the two positions I felt more identified with. I said actually both but if they require me to choose one, I chose one. The one I chose was the one that person was managing. So we moved forward to salary negotiation, etc.
In the middle of that screening the other HR person contacts me and tells me my application is really good and asks me about my salary expectation.
I am interested in both positions. What should I do?
Should I just move forward separately with the other HR person for the other position? Or should I tell her I withdraw my application since I am moving forward with the other application?
And now of course a crucial question is the salary expectation. Because I negotiated it already for the ongoing application, I have no margin (they do not have it either) to negotiate much.
