I’m a recruiter…

No, it’s not bad to go after more than one job within a company…especially one as large as you’re describing.

Yes, you should be forthcoming about all of your other interviews (including the othe ones internally). In the job hunt, honesty is always the best policy. Sometimes you need to sugar coat things, but definitely err on the side of honesty.

Hope this helps, best of luck on these!!

I would not say it’s bad. I did something similar. I wouldn’t assume that they necessarily know about your other application (if it is such a large company, sometimes departments can be pretty autonomous), but definitely be honest about it.

Yeah – I think you can defintiely tell them. I think express why you are so interested in that company. It will show a dedication/loyalty. 

Sidenote – I have never been asked whereelse I was applying. That’s interesting to me.

@jaykayel:  Sometimes they ask where else you’re applying so they can see what other activity you have going on and can adjust the process if necessary. If they LOVE someone, they may speed the process along knowing that the person has other interviews and they risk losing him/her to another job if they drag their feet.
