How to apply to Apple Computer. If you're responding to a specific job posting, please indicate the appropriate code that you'll find below the address on the page where the job description appears. If you don't see something that interests you now, we'd still like to see your resume. We're always looking for great people to work on our future technologies, and you might have just what we're looking for. Please see our resume tips for information on submitting a successful resume.

To apply in person. If you would like to apply in person, visit the Apple Employment Opportunities center located in Building 1 of the main Apple Campus, located at the corner of De Anza Blvd. and Hwy. 280 in Cupertino, CA. Be sure to bring a copy of your current resume.

What happens next? When you send us your resume, we will acknowledge receipt by regular mail or e-mail, and will enter it into our resume database. If you're responding to a specific job advertised on the web, your resume will also be forwarded to a specialist who works on filling the types of job for which you might be qualified. This takes about a week. Apple managers and recruiters will review your resume and see if your set of skills and experience matches those required for a current job opening. If it looks like a good match, we'll call you to set up a phone interview to learn more about your experience and background. Next, you will come in for an interviews with the hiring manager and his or her team.

The interviewing process. The number of interviews can vary. A decision could come very quickly, or it may take a few weeks if several people on a cross-functional team need to participate in the interviewing process. Once the interviews are complete, the hiring manager or recruiter will let you know the status of your application. If you don't hear from us within two weeks, please give the recruiter or hiring manager a call. If you're also interviewing with other companies and are about to receive an offer, please alert the hiring manager; we will expedite the review process and make a swift decision on your application.

How to send your resume. If you're interested in a job posted on the web or in career opportunities at Apple in general, please e-mail your resume to applejobs@apple.com. Simply paste your resume into the area reserved for the message body; do not attach enclosures or send formatted text. Please remember to use "Attn: code" from the job posting (or the generic "Employment," if you're not responding to a specific job posting).

E-mail is the preferred method. But you can also send your resume in the following ways:
  • Via fax to:
