Hello. I have a question about whether to use the word "to".

Context: I read about a job offering on craigslist, it said this: "this is a short-term (3-6 months), part-time and paid position in Vancouver. It's a great opportunity to work with a well-known brand and to pad your resume".

Question: why is there a "to" between "and" and "pad"? Am I allowed to say, this is a great opportunity to work with a well-known brand and pad your resume?

Thanks.

    I would omit 'to' before 'pad' if I thought of working with the brand and padding your resume as one thing, that is, if working with the brand is a way to pad your resume.

    If I thought of them as two different reasons to take the position, I would use 'to' in both places.
