    Well i had a phone interview, but nothing formal from the nearest Apple Store, for a seasonal Mac Specialist. I've wanted a job at an Apple store for a while now, so this is a big deal to me, except i kinda fudged, the lady asked me about iLife, i've never really used anything but itunes, and iphoto for the last week(sure i've burned a dvd using iDVD) and i told the lady i wasn't very good, but after using them for a few hours i've taken some old movies and made them chapters, and made a really polished dvd. Should i call her back and tell her i was wrong, or wait for her to call me back next week and tell me i didn't get the job. I think i'll go with the first choice, but how do i tell her i knew how to use the software all along, while sounding professional.

    Please help!!!

    Honestly, I would wait it out. I think calling and telling them you were "wrong" would lead them to ask themselves about what else you told them about was also "wrong". And look at it this way, if you told them you weren't that good and you go in and show them that you are at least now proficient, they could see that as a good thing.

    Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?
    It's not like they test you on your use of iApps. Calm down friend. You'll be alright. Lie all you want, just don't lie to a customer, or they'll keep coming back hounding you. There was one guy when I worked there (I never lied to him) that came in EVERY sunday for 12 weeks when I got him to switch. I hate people like that.

    Start brushing up on your iLife know-how. Film a short movie, edit it with iMovie, send it to iDVD, add chapters and some fance music to the title menu, and then add a slideshow from iPhoto to it.

    Just fiddle around with the applications until you're a little more comfertable. Good luck!
