Apple is one of the largest technology companies in the world. You’ve probably seen iPhones and MacBooks during one of your outings away from your home office.

Since Apple sells products to consumers, they need to have a call center and chat support platform. This is good news for those of us who want to work from home because we get the opportunity to apply for positions at a well established tech giant.

Apple has different departments for their products and you won’t support everything, but these products include Apple Watch, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Mac, AirPort, Apple TV, and iTunes.

You may have heard of other companies that hire for Apple like Kelly Connect and Concentrix. If you can’t get your foot in the door directly with Apple you should consider applying to these two companies too.
