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.

When I was last looking - before I got my current position - there were a couple of companies that I'd apply to nearly any position that looked both like a good match and interesting. It must have worked, I got three interviews and one offer (and job), all from what I think are pretty to very good companies to work for - even if the two based near Puget Sound have their critics (myself included in one case).

Yes, one of the companies that I'm applying to would not have been my first choice, but as the weeks roll by I'm learning to spread my search wider. And it's not like I don't like that company or anything - just not my *first* pick.
