I am a PhD 10 years out of tier 1 school. Applied to apple for a RF/Optics specialty. Got a very fast reply back but from a HR guy (different specialty, no overlap in my opinion) and they want to see me ASAP onsite but only with Eng Manager, I only spoke to HR guy.
I interviewed with Apple before, and it was traditional. Took a while, phonecall with engineering Manager than onsite with the team. They wouldn't say much, the usual.
This seems much stranger. Do they ever pretend like it's a completely diff group alltogether for secrecy?
Currently in the Bay Area working in a niche HW startup.

    Go on the interview and see what’s up. Yes, it is completely possible someone said, “great person, I don’t have a req but my friend over there does and it could be a fit.”
