Default More than one position

If a station is looking for many positions to be filled (eg ENG shooters EFP shooters, editors etc.) Should I apply with one cover letter and resume and state I am applying for all positions? Or one letter and demo for each position? I have been told that if you are applying for all positions on one letter that it may look like I don't know what I want. I have 9 years experience but I don't want to look like I'm a rookie looking for just anything. What would be best.

Thanks
Scott

I think that you should apply for each position wtih its own letter and reel. Each position may have a different manager. An EFF may be under creative services, while an ENG may be under the News Director and/or Chief. They will start with the HRM department, but then sent out to the correct manager.

I would agree. Your letter and resume or reel could go to the wrong manager. He or she might throw it away before it can get into the right persons hand.
