Dear Apple Managers,

I have been aware of opportunities at Apple, and would like to enquire about any possible openings for the job roles of, Specialist, Inventory Specialist and Genius. I am applying for these 3 positions as I like aspects of each. As a specialist I would like helping customers pick a relevant product and be happy with their decision. As a Genius, I would like solving peoples issues with various devices and repairing hardware, as I am keen to learn as much as I can from these roles. And an Inventory specialist, as I like to face new challenges and using my initiative to solve new problems as they arise.

I am currently an upper school student at xxxxx upper school, I have an extensive knowledge of information technology, software and hardware. I also enjoy discussing with people what product they wish to purchase for their personal or business needs or offering relevant advice for technical issues. I am also familiar with Apples range of products including, iPhone, Mac, and the software in between.

My CV below contains additional details about my skills and experiences within IT. I hope I will be considered for a position within Apple and appreciate the time taken to read my CV. I can be contacted by email and by phone which are listed above, if you wish to ask for any more information. As I am 16 I can only work part time only, but I can do very flexible hours.

I patiently await your response and hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,


xxxx

Objective:
A placement as an apple Specialist, Genius or Inventory specialist, to use my knowledge of apple products as well as software to help the customer swiftly and easily solve any problems they may have. To help customers identify which product they need and help them to set up said product.

Skills/Qualities:
I am currently taking my GCSEs at xxxxx upper school,recently moving from xxxxx upper school, and I am predicted the following grades; English: B, Maths:B,Science:B,Business Studies: B. I am also familiar with Apple products as I have been using them since 2007. I have also have had a keen interest in computers since very young and since have gained an extensive knowledge of computers and mobile devices such as phones or tablets.

My friends have always seen me as the person to come too when they're having problems with any of their computers or phones and I am always keen to help them as it helps me to develop my knowledge of IT and i'm happy when a problem bothering someone is resolved. I also have some knowledge of hardware used in computers and how a computer works as I have built and set up 2 custom PCs using my knowledge of processors, graphics cards, motherboards and RAM to build a high end PC capable of editing HD video and playing the most graphics intensive games, and I would be eager to learn about the hardware used in a Mac, iPhone or iPad.

I could help customers to define what they are looking for from Apple and to help them make the right decision for their needs. I am very patient and good listener so I believe I could help any customer understand the product and its features so they are immediately familiar with the technology.

I have a passion for technology and innovation and I believe that apple is the forefront of innovation creating revolutionary products such as the iPhone, a product that changed the way we all listen to music, game, and talk to our friends face to face from miles away.

I have done previous unofficial warehousing work for a friends father in the past at a builders merchants.
My main roles were:
Shelving stock from the warehouse when new stock came in to take its place
Guiding the forklift to put the right stock in the right place according to index
Using initiative to prioritise what needed to be shelved in the shop and stacked in the warehouse
Helping customers to find the product they were looking for inside the shop


Special skills:
Microsoft office
iTunes
Mac OS X
Complete familiarity with the Windows operating system, which would allow me to easily help customers to make the transition from Windows to Mac. This will also help me to troubleshoot Apple programs running on Windows PCs or laptops.

Academic and personal references available on request.

Would include ' a passion for things Apple, from iPhone to MacBook Pro to Mac Pros with a keenness to learn more' sort of thing to show your enthusiasm. Also use words like 'dedicated to customer support' and 'expanding others information of Apple technology'.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Just a note - we are nothing more than enthusiasts and have no special knowledge of the Apple Store application process. As such, I'd recommend taking this to a career counsellor or someone who specializes in resume writing as they'll be better skilled and better able to help you.
