    Jobs at Apple
    Hey guys I am 17 and am currently doing my A-levels, im looking to get a job at Apple in the UK, I have been trying for a year and a half now and have been to 1 seminar (but that was a year ago) but i failed at that one so bad, what do you think my chances are? and could it be my resume why i haven't heard anything in such a long time?

    At the Apple store or their UK headquarters?

    I know its a pain, but they most likely think you are too young

    if you want to work in one of the stores, why don't you dye your hair green, be either clinically obese or critically thin, wear a knit hat no matter how warm the weather is and wear your jeans so they *just* sit on your hips , exposing your underwear?

    I don't know about in the UK but here in the USA there aren't that many Apple stores so it's pretty competitive to get a job working there. They are probably getting so many applicants that they can be very choosy. Good luck with it though because you might get in.

    You most likely have to be 18. At least you do here in the US.

    Don't stop trying. If this is what you want to do, stay with it. If you stop trying, you automatically KNOW what the outcome will be.

    You should speak to the store manager. Tell him/her that this is something that you really want to do. Have your resume printed out and with you. Politely inform the manager that you will keep coming back and applying till they hire you. I would suggest dressing-up and looking sharp when you speak with the manager. That means, find out how the store employees dress and emulate that style.

    Don't give up.

    Best of luck.
