    yes, seriously.

    My advice is the same advice I give for all interviews for any job; you need to convey two things to them - that you would be good for this job, and that you're really excited about this job. That's all that really matters.

    Apple doesn't like any chance of info being leaked to the masses, and if you tell them you are part of a site that is built around that type of info and other rumors, they certaintly won't like the possibilities.

    It may also make them question your reasons for wanting to work there.

    I worked at another retail place here in the US and the minimum age was 16. I think a lot of employers want you to be able to drive.

    That's funny. Now did they say "we will give you call in a couple days or send you an email and let you know.."? Or did they say "DUDE.. you got the job, welcome to teh team.."

    Everyone in the circle said "well im sold!"
    One guy said I did "awesome"
    And one guy said that I had more technical knowledge than 4/5 of them, but that I didn't talk "tech" to them (like in a good way)

    Oh and they asked for my shirt size. I don't like to count my chickens though..

    Hmmmm. My other half went down to the Marriot for an interview too today and walked away with pretty much the same comments. Perhaps you two will be co-workers soon?! Are you going for FT or PT?

    And yeah, my interview advice to him was "don't mention ANYTHING about me being on the forums". :)

    No way! Thatd be a hell of a commute! Although my girlfriend did it for a few weeks when she had to. I live in newport news during the school semester.

    It's the last year my parents are paying for, so yeah i'm hoping to graduate on time :)
