Recently I’ve said “no thanks” to Apple’s job offer. Was I stupid? Probably. But probably not.
A few days ago, I’ve received a LinkedIn message from Jennifer Rakow that claims to be an Apple recruiter. She told me that she had several opportunities and asked whether I would be interested to work for her company.
Initially I thought, “Horray… Could this be Jackpot? Finally, my chance to go to the Bay Area and maybe meet the Big Stevie J”.
But then again I thought, will I have to let go of my personal business? I mean, currently all I have offered are all Apple applications. If this means I have to dissolve all of them, I would have to say no and continue my current day job in a less conflicting company instead.
Since there isn’t any more reply, it looks like they are not interested with enterprising people like me
. The Mac and iOS are great, but to me they are just canvasses that I can draw my painting on. I do have great respect for Apple and the stuff that they make. Nevertheless, I simply don’t see myself comfortable of being a corporate drone
for the rest of my life and being dependent on appraisals.
