Apple Wants Students to be At-Home Advisors

Apple has started a large recruiting push on campuses across the US.

They are looking for college and university students to become Apple At-Home Advisors.

Students who take part in the program get to work from home, while joining Apple’s “virtual team, taking calls from our customers.”

The job is perfect for Mac-geeks and technically-minded students to make some extra money, while enjoying some pretty decent perks. During the school year, they can work up to 16 hours a week providing tech support. Over the summer, they can work fulltime hours and put in 40 hours a week.

Advisors enjoy perks like a free iMac, discounts on Apple products and a benefits package.

Apple provides comprehensive training over four weeks of full-time learning in a virtual environment. They are looking for students with GPA of at least 2.7. They’re also looking for applicants who are “tech savvy and customer service focused, with good communication skills and the ability to work independently.”
