I am doing my computer science degree and also minoring in Physics.
My goal someday is to work in computational physics or perhaps software engineering. I was just wondering if anybody here knows how hard it is to get a job at Apple?.

I imagine they only pick the best developers on earth. Just wanting some opinions. Do they pay well also?. The field I want to go into is generally around $130k per year on average.

Can't say much about Apple's hiring process..but every company is looking for talented engineers..

Having said that, which field is it that pays $130k/yr on average? SW? Perhaps with 10+ years of exp, sure..but don't expect anything like that to start..

Regards
