I see this question in several different forms on this website, but I don't think they cover this particular scenario so I will ask anyway.
I'm a computer science student applying for Coop jobs in Canada. A company that I am a huge fan of has posted two jobs that I can apply two that are different, but are both development jobs that I can perform. The same person is receiving applications for both of these positions and I really would like to work for this company.
I'd like to know, would it hurt my chances of getting employed if I applied for both positions? Would it help? I am slightly more qualified for one of the positions but I'd like to do everything I can in order to get one of the two positions.
I'm concerned this may be reflect poorly on me if they realize I applied to both jobs.
