APM + SWE as a new grad

Question regarding new grads and applying to APM / RPM type jobs.

Can I apply to both APM and SWE jobs at the same company? My reasoning is that usually APM type programs are much more competitive, and as a CS student I don’t want to miss out on regular SWE jobs because I’d prefer a PM program.

This is for APM / RPM for Google, FB, Uber, Twitter, etc.

      OP
      And if I get rejected for PM I’m still eligible for SWE correct?

    Technically you can. But I heard it’s preferable to focus on one because it can show indecisiveness.

      This isn’t true. Everyone knows that APM programs are a lot more competitive than SWE roles, so they’ll understand why you’re interviewing for both.
