I am sure that this is a topic that has been beaten to death but, as I have just joined, I thought I'd dredge it back up for my own selfish reasons. I applied for the job back in mid-May and I have not heard back from Apple since. Is this normal or is there something wrong. If I'm not qualified for the job, it would be nice to get a little "Sorry, you suck" email just for some closure. Another possibility is that I may have just chosen a rather silly time to apply for the job in Apple's eyes. The position was listed for "January 2013-December 2013" and as I applied in the direct middle of that time frame, perhaps they just want me to try again this coming January. So, with these questions and thoughts in mind, I'd love to hear what anyone who is either well acquainted with the job or is currently in the job thinks about my issue.
