So long as the resume remains within the company that's fine. But I've
known of people who applied for one job, and then applied for another and
discovered that their resume was already sent in often. Often as a result
of switching employment agencies. The agency would send in the applicants'
resumed without their knowledge or consent, and this would screw them over
because the hiring company would rather move on to the next applicant
rather than try and figure out which agency was genuinely representing the
job candidate.
