Can I Apply for Multiple Jobs at the Same Company?

Dear Experts, There are two pairs of similar jobs at a company I am interested in working at. I am aware applying for more than one looks awkward/is bad form, so how do I choose one while expressing interest in the others? Or, do I apply for more than one? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:Q#480 Choose the one with the best fit. Employers prefer to know that you aren't just carpet bombing all open positions. (@gradversity) Q#480 Stick to one. Generalists don't win in this case, specialists do! (@beneubanks) Q#480 Fine to submit targeted app for more than 1 job @ the same company. Tell all the ways you can help them, boldly. (@DawnBugni) Q#480 If capable of doing different jobs at the same company, apply. BUT be detailed about ability in each app. (@jtodonnell) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
