I have a personal dropbox account on my computer to which I sync all my personal files. I have a new job where we share files. Can I have two different accounts on my computer so I can chose to which dropbox account I save my personal and job files?

Unless one of the accounts is a Dropbox Business account, you can't sync two accounts to one computer. You can sync one, and then use the Dropbox website for the other. Dropbox Business accounts can sync one Business and one personal (Basic, Plus, Professional) account.

You can only do this if one of the accounts is a Business Account. You can then follow this guide to do it.

 When you say you can’t “sync” two accounts to a single computer, does that mean you can’t use two different accounts on the same computer?  

We have two separate basic accounts, one for each user.  Can we use the same iPad to access them both?   If one user signs out and the other one signs in will that work?

On a mobile device, you can sign out of the Dropbox app and the next user can sign in. Just know that any settings will be lost when you sign out, and any files or folders marked as Available Offline will not longer be available offline after signing out of your account.
