New-to-me norms for job applications

Even though I have it on the best authority that this is the way things work now, I am still thrown by the idea that companies no longer respond to job applications unless they are interested in going to the next step of an interview.

I'm also having trouble wrapping my head around the idea that it's OK to apply for multiple openings at the same company at the same time. But, since one of the job postings I have applied for has three very similar other ones also open, I guess that's what I'm going to do.

Still feels strange.
