  3. Hi Eric,

    I work in recruiting for Apple and I came across your profile/information. I would like to discuss with you about the opportunities in our Touch Technology team, which features a collaborative environment with creative, smart people, world-class products and cutting edge technologies. The team features opportunities for individuals to contribute across a wide spectrum of disciplines. Best in class engineering excellence and thoroughness is expected and encouraged. Learning and building of skill-sets is highly encouraged. Invention, IP and patent creation is expected and supported. Pushing the envelope to design and ship innovative products with best-in-class technologies and user experiences is the main goal of the touch technology team at Apple.

    I know you are probably content in your current position but all I am asking is for you to keep your options open to Apple and find out more about the opportunities. It would be great to chat with you to discuss further. Should there be an exploratory discussion between you and our engineering team in the very near future, it will allow talents like yourself and our team to network with one another. This exploratory discussion might lead to something “great”.

    If you are interested or not interested, hearing back from you would be much appreciated. I look forward to hearing back from you. Thanks much for your time.

  9. Howdy! This article couldn’t be written any better! Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this information to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!
