Employees can be your best marketing ambassadors. In fact, they can be a social media powerhouse for you.

There’s work and there’s your life’s work.
The kind of work that has your fingerprints all over all. The kind of work that you’d never compromise on. That you’d sacrifice a weekend for. You can do that kind of work at Apple. People don’t come here to play it safe. They come here to swim in the deep end.

Something big. Something that couldn’t happen anywhere else.
Welcome to Apple.
Apple is not alone. IKEA is another standout in harnessing the passion of its employees.
