You can always go here;

http://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa, it's a start.

I think you are wasting your time trying to speak to Apple's HR, my experience is they will simply tell you to upload your CV or use agencies. I have no idea if they work the same way in Asia although I would think it most likely.

Apple's website does list Apple experts but I am not sure they can help you.

Actually if you was clever enough you would go to Apple Singapore and follow their instructions, no headhunters as such, just HR, that have unique software, that can analyze your suitability.

Just follow the instructions selecting Singapore in the Country field. and post your CV. why ask questions? I can see you need help so I will post the link.

If you need to ask questions you can also email them! :wink:

If you really want to work at Apple, save some money and register for WWDC. They have moved it to the end of this month. Last time I was there in 2007, it was this time of year.

That is conference for Apple Developers, usually several thousand of them. If you are serious about Apple, you get to meet Apple Engineers, HR, Execs, plus you meet many people from companies who work with the various Apple platforms.

It is in SF, but well worth the effort if you are serious about working for them! :)

I also heard if you work your self up to the top, the trip down is rather rapid.

You said people who are dying, work there. They already know they're dying. I said people who work there, end up dying.

But with Foxconn in the news, it don't matter no more. :lol:

Anyhoo, back on topic.

OP could always email the Grand Jefe himself. We all know he responds to email from random people from time to time: sjobs@apple.com


Random Person: "Do you have an opening for a <job> there? Also, I have other questions if you don't mind.....

....<end>. Thank you very much."
Steve: Yes.



Brevity FTW!

That whole thing kinda went over your head like a lead baloon didn't it. It's a phrase commonly used when you want to do something really bad. He was just dying go to the casino! Figure of speech. Anywhoooooo...... :wink:

Just going back once again to the main topic...headhunters.

I've been exploring the market for a while, and it seems to be the one good way of going for a job opportunity is through headhunters. This MNCs receive hundreds/¿thousands? of CVs for their jobs. It is rather easier for you to get an internal hiring manager that they know locally rather than just filling up their already-too-filled CV stack....

what do you think?

That, or learn how to write a proper cover letter. With a proper cover letter, if you have something to offer, the cover letter will be the key to unlock the mind of the reader. A good cover letter will determine if the 1st page of the CV gets a glance at all. A good cover letter will grab the attention of the reader (within the first 5-10 seconds) and cause them to at least look at the 1st page of the CV. Without a cover letter it may, as suggested, just lay in the stack.

If it helps, I believe Apple Singapore uses recruiters from PrimeStaff Group for junior positions.
