July 11, 2012, 5:42 PM — This Apple recruiting video is making its way around the InterWeb. In it, we get to visit a bunch of the different parts of the Apple campus, as well as watch interviews with people who are very excited to be working at a company like Apple, because it's awesome.
It's a lot like all of the other videos from Apple, but instead of showing you how awesome and exciting their products are, this time we get to see a bit behind all of the people who are making the exciting and awesome products.
I know this is a recruiting video, and of course, they tend to focus their cameras at the really good and exciting people at the company - they're not going to interview Marge from Accounts Receivable sitting in her cube trying to get a vendor to pay their bill on time.
But a lot of this video, is, well, just too happy and peppy for me. And I like Apple's products (for the most part). Maybe it's because I'm also a Generation Xer who is cynical by nature, and not the type of person who would be recruited anyway (I don't think Apple is looking for top-notch IT journalists who write snarkily).
If you're not like me, and are one of the best-and-brightest and are young and attractive (and love Apple), does this recruiting video do it for you? Are you firing up the resume as we speak? Let me know.
