Do not just sit there and wait for something to happen, introduce yourself and show an interest in everything around you. 
  6. Do I have to have a telephone interview? It depends on the position you are applying for but you will always have a conversion with an HR representative, even to just book an interview. This being the case, ensure you are courteous from the outset.
  7. Do I have to have an Apple phone, ipad or mac in order to get a job at Apple? Whilst this obviously isn't a requirement, you do need to have a good grasp of the products that they sell. This will come up in your interviews so you should definitely have an opinion about them. 
  8. Do I need to know my resume/CV? You will be asked to explain details of your resume/CV so it's a good idea to really know exactly what you have written. 
  9. What do I need to know about the Apple group exercise? You should know ahead of time that it will be focused on Apple products so you should really prepare in advance and have an opinion on each of the myriad products that Apple sell.
