If you want to have a chance to work for Apple, know that when the company screens a candidate, they are based on four factors in particular.
talk about it Tim Cook During the speech he gave last week in Naples on the occasion of the awarding of an honorary degree in International Innovation and Management At Federico II University, we give the letter to students explaining that it is imperative for Apple that future employees care about the world around them:
We have a group of people in the company who really want to change the world, who want to enrich people’s lives and leave the world better than they found it. It is this kind of feeling that drives people to do their best and the results are amazing.
Basically, there are four qualities that Apple looks for when talking to a potential new employee: collaboration, creativity, curiosity, and efficiency.
there cooperation It is considered an “essential” skill for people who want to work for Apple because it is essential to creating new products. Individual contributions, he says, are powerful and essential, but two strong people working together can do exceptional work, and small teams come in to do amazing things.
If I share my idea with you, this idea will grow and grow and improve.
there creativity One of the other things that Apple rewards, that’s why it’s always looking for people who think differently.
We are looking for people who can analyze a problem without getting caught up in the dogma of how to always see that problem.” In short, people who face the problem in some way and look at it from different angles, using their creativity to find the solution.
“There are no stupid questions,” Cook told the students, and Curiosity It is one of the qualities that Apple looks for in people.
When someone starts asking questions like a child, it adds pressure on that person which leads to thinking about the answers really deeply.
Of course Apple employees should be too experts in their fields and this mainly comes from education and previous work experience.
If we are doing anything related to industrial design, we need someone who knows industrial design and has skills from college and workdays.
These four traits are a good formula that Apple has used in the past and will continue to use when hiring.
But the passion that brings satisfaction in one’s life must not be missing either. “People should work for a greater cause than they do,” in which case they should have a “common vision of serving customers and improving their lives in some way.”
In short, the central question – and he concludes – should be: «What do I do for others? With that purpose, it is unbelievable what you can do from a business point of view.”
