At-Home Advisor: unanswered questions!

In the original Apple At-Home Advisor thread, I've noticed that many good questions get skipped and lost in the excited postings of those who are fortunately moving along in the AHA hiring process.

I'm starting this thread for anything related to the position that you would like to know or that needs elaboration, especially for those in the initial stages of the application process.

I would like to know:
1. Has anyone gotten their INITIAL contact from Apple after weeks (or months), rather than just a few days, after submitting the initial application(s). That is my situation, having applied for every At-Home position during the past month, or more, with no response. I intend to keep applying, but just curious if it is a lost cause after a week or so.

2. After your original failed application, did you change something in your application (or your method of application) that got the hiring department's attention and resulted in an interview?

3. Is anyone who has been hired for the AHA "older" like me, 50+...?

4. I'm considering applying with Kelly Services for their (low paying) Apple tech support position in order to make myself more attractive to Apple. From the other thread, I understand that perhaps some have made this switch from Kelly to Apple, but the details are sketchy. Is their any prohibition against Apple hiring employees away from its subcontractor Kelly?

Thanks in advance!

I would address these to the main thread, so they get noticed.
Some people have gotten a response a few months or weeks later after applying.

The goal to getting noticed is a great cover letter. You want to standout from the others.

There are plenty of posts about Kelly. Everyone has said that there are no problems with transfering; though most people dont think its worth doing with Kelly.

I have some questions:
What should I do to get ready for an advising meeting?
Can I talk to a different advisor than the one I was assigned?
I met with my advisor, but I still have questions that he/she wasn't able to answer; now what?

I honestly think you're better off posting in the original thread

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1120467

Not many people who are subscribed to the original are going to see your new thread. The only reason why I did is because Google picked up the new link and I clicked on it accidentally instead of the original one.

same here, but i'm glad it's in a different thread. the other one is so convoluted, it is difficult to find a flow and coherent answers. this thread may lead to more direct answers.

could this thread be made into a sticky?

i can only answer the first question by the op. i applied on 11/27 and never got any type of response. i re-applied 12/17 and got a form 'thanks for applying, your stuff is being reviewed' email. :crickets:

It may be because the summer start date (for student AHA positions) is closing in, but it seems that Apple's responses to applicants are being expedited. Most people are getting follow-ups on a pretty consistent schedule.

If you haven't already gotten a response to your initial application(s), now may be the time to reapply. Just sayin'.

My timeline is as follows:

7/7 - Phone interview (15 min)
7/14 - 2nd interview via Skype that ended up being another phone interview with tech issues on her (interviewer) end (20 min)
8/4 - 3rd/final interview via Skype (little less than 30 min)

Now I'm awaiting a decision, which I was told will take 2-3 weeks. The wait is gonna kill me but hopefully the outcome is good
