Depressed about my CV

Apple industry
May 30 35 Comments

The impression I get from blind is that Apple is a tier 3 company (at best tier 2) and it is the first company that I have sold myself to. This worries me because I feel I won’t get callbacks from FNG recruiters when I apply. Fellow blinders at Apple, how has your experience been applying to FNG? And folks at FNG, how do you perceive Apple?

      Not really. Apples supply chain is one tweet away from getting decapitated. It’s also not a growth stock anymore. Warren buffet has it in his portfolio for God’s sake.

      OP, don't worry about these Blind listings. Just develop your skills. The rest will come.

      They really don't have anything to solve or failed to invent in last one decade. Airpods don't count

    F and G are ad sales, and N is just a movie streaming service, so I don't know why you're fretting. Just do good work and build a personal brand/reputation instead of worrying about your employer.

      Almost every company in the Bay including Apple is trying to solve non-existent first world problems for profit. I might as well do that at companies with high TC and prestige.

      unlike the ad or streaming companies, the fruit company changed the world ... twice

      Eh no, it just produced two devices that made the lives of the people in the first world slightly more entertaining.

    Seems silly to get depressed about this. Why don’t you just apply to one or more of them and see what happens?

    Blinders are stupid... they would give their newborns for Facebook or Google. If you like your work and think you are well paid, stay. If not, apply. Apple is a great company, have some self respect. It has streaming services, online store. .... it is a HUGE company. FNG don’t only hire amongst themselves. Also Netflix is shit. :/

      Why is Netflix shit

    • Twitter U5Hxf3
      Always stressed about being laid off. My manager came from Netflix and he was fired within 6 months of being hired there :/ and he is pretty good. It is a very political company. The only reason people think so highly of it is because of the high money compensation, but is not worth it.

    Why in the world would you correlate what Blinders think to your resume?! 🙄

    ...or literally anything else for that matter?!

    At least Apple is trying to innovate to some extent. I don't see much interesting work coming out of selling more ads and streaming entertainment.

    If I didn't dislike Apple so much, I'd think it would be a great place to work.

      what about all the ML research it's funding? or all the large infrastructure projects that it pushes?
