    Yes - unless the organisation states on the job spec that they won't consider second applications within a certain time limit (unlikely).

    Unless the company states otherwise, then yes you can. Just make sure your job application aligns with the new job description.

    In my experience getting to the final stage for one job, especially if you know why you weren't considered the best fit, can be beneficial. Depending on how similar the roles are, you've proved to HR that you're worth their time and if you get in touch with the recruiter that managed the process for the first job, they may be willing to put you in touch with the hiring manager or recruiter for this role.

    I got my first job after graduating in this way.
