Job position targeted mainly at college students
Apple is currently busy on college campuses recruiting for its At-Home Advisor program, accounts say. The company is reported to be handing out flyers describing the job as well as touting some of its advantages. These include an Apple-supplied iMac, a benefits package, flexible work hours and a potential inside track on an Apple job after school is finished.
The flyers also identify some restrictions. Candidates must be enrolled students with a minimum 2.7 GPA, and willing to work full-time during the summer and at least 16 hours a week during the school term. For areas in which a person doesn't have expertise, training programs are in place.
At-Home Advisors are Apple's home-based technical support force. The program is aimed explicitly at college students, and supplements Apple's professional support staff. Another campaign targeted at students is the Apple Store Leader Program, in which graduates are rotated through Apple Store jobs before possibly taking on a more managerial position.
