(Apple) How to appeal a rescinded internal INTL transfer?
Hi peeps so this is for Apple folks I’m posting for my wife who is a team manager at Apple.
She was offered an international promotion which would have sent her overseas passed all the interviews got a verbal offer...waited about 3 months only to have an EVP deny the relocation request. Odd considering Apple is hurting in that market and she’s a native speaker with near perfect English and management skills. Apparently they felt her hiring manager didn’t try hard enough to find locals for the job but she’s from that country and just became a US Citizen last summer.
Is there realistically anything she could or should do given Apple culture to appeal this?
She’s literally been depressed ever since she found out and I just don’t know what to advise her to do?
I mean obviously emailing Tim Cook would probably get her fired but short of that would setting up a 1:1 with the EVP who blocked it help or hurt her? You hear stories about how matrixed the organization with strict hierarchy and her potential boss seems like he’s afraid to rock the boat despite really wanting her for the role.
Thanks in advance! She does not know I’m posting this.
