    I'm a Computer Engineering Student and I'm about to graduate. I was wondering if there was anybody out there who worked for Apple (or had suggestions) that would help me in getting a job with Apple in California. This would be a dream job if I could land it, but how to go about it is another issue entirely.

    Yeah, I've gone through their online stuff. I've submitted my resume and emailed one of the contacts that was listed.

    I think that the previous suggestion is the best, you wont find anyone currently working for Apple on here because they are not allowed to visit apple rumors sites. I think that there are a few that formerly worked for Apple on here, but anyone on here worked for Apple a while ago, so anything they can tell you may have changed by now. Good luck tring to get a job though.

    Getting a development job with any company as a graduate with little or no experience can be tough, and I doubt Apple is one of the easiest!

    Being enthusiastic and confident (but not overbearing!) in your communications can help - if you submit a snail-mail CV/resume, a good cover letter can help make you stand out.

    Showing any knowledge of the Mac will help greatly, but of course, there's no substitute for experience. If you had any Mac development experience, even if it's a very minor shareware utility or game, it might help. It'd show both technical proficiency and initiative.

    I was very lucky, as Apple came to the college looking for students for work experience, and I was one of only a handful of Mac geeks in the class. Then when I graduated I had a job without even an interview.
