Job Description:

Summary Posted: May 11, 2022 Weekly Hours: 40 Role Number:200375509 Apple University provides wide-ranging and unique educational programs for Apple employees. Through our original curricula, we aim to foster deeper understanding, critical reflection, and engaged discussion about Apple's culture, organization, and values, and about the social context and public culture in which Apple works. To advance these ambitious aims, Apple University creates and delivers original classes, courses, workshops, tools, articles, and media. These offerings help inspire intellectual curiosity, sustain Apple's culture of debate, and build thoughtful and informed leadership throughout the company. The University team includes faculty from academia, with deep expertise in select disciplines, as well as faculty who previously held leadership roles in Apple and were drawn to teach. They work with the Production team, which includes the broad areas of expertise required to develop, produce, and deliver all of the offerings listed above. Content producers within the university work side-by-side with AU's faculty, design team, and program team, as well as with partners across Apple, to make stuff, and make stuff happen. The breadth of AU's curriculum - which spans business, humanities, and social sciences - along with the variety of products we create means that the role of producer can take many forms: journalist, researcher, writer, creative director, video producer, content strategist, product manager, project manager. And on any given day, you may be called upon to act, additionally, as shepherd, champion, whisperer, coach, dissenter, and beyond. Key Qualifications Writing and Editing. You've written long- and short-form copy, across a variety of media. It's been creative and perhaps educational in nature. You wouldn't be thrown if someone asked you to work on a children's book, a video script, a set of development tips, website copy, or a deeply researched academic article - sometimes all in one week. You've done some substantive editing to help others' writing become clearer, simpler, and tighter. Research. To shape your writing and other creative work, you've had to quickly and accurately get up-to-speed on a wide variety of topics and perspectives. Synthesis and framing. You've had to take a huge amount of information and perspectives and decide what to focus on and why. You feel comfortable doing this, even when that focus is subject to debate, disagreement, and change. Storytelling. You know not only how to structure information logically, but how to weave individual elements into a coherent, compelling narrative that moves people to think, feel, and act in new ways. Creative leadership. You can think conceptually, and formulate a vision for a work or series of works. You may or may not be trained as a designer, but you can sketch and prototype to convey your ideas, and you understand how to coax great creative work out of others. You can give compelling feedback to people who work in design, engineering, communications, or teaching. You can move work forward despite setbacks, and do so either alone or with a group. Experience building and practicing these skills, and can demonstrate them through a portfolio of your work. We're open to a wide variety of prior roles and backgrounds and especially interested in candidates with depth and breadth of expertise. You may have worked for a magazine or newspaper, producing deeply reported stories. You may have been a strategist, writer, or editorially oriented creative director at a consultancy or creative studio. You may have been creating curricula or producing research in higher education. You may have spent time in product or project management. Description If you're right for this job, you probably have these qualities: You're a craftsperson. You feel internally motivated to tinker and refine, to explore many different possible angles, to get something right. For you, "good enough" isn't good enough. You see both a blank page and an outline as an invitation. You can create something from nothing. You can also bring a well of creative ideas to something that exists. You appreciate the journey that a good idea goes on. You truly and deeply appreciate how working with others will make something better.You embrace iteration and collaboration, even when they can be messy and frustrating. You have the humility and curiosity that this requires. You can see an issue from many angles. You understand the importance both of voicing your own opinion and of listening to others with an open mind. You can discuss something in a balanced and nuanced way. You're intrigued by "the intersection of technology and liberal arts." This is an idea that captures Apple's view on what makes something great, and something we take seriously in Apple University. You're comfortable behind the scenes - and prepared to persuade when needed. You like being the person behind the person at the front of the room. And you're also someone who can influence the influencers with compelling presentations. You're committed to inclusion. You take seriously all the experiences and perspectives that people could bring to your work or take from it. You have real curiosity about organizations -especially about Apple. You seek out opportunities to learn, and would set your sights on the challenges and opportunities inside one of the world's most influential companies. You probably have a story (or two) about how your professional or personal life has been enhanced by our company, products, or services. Education & Experience BA, BS, or equivalent Additional Requirements To apply for this role, please submit both your resume and a cover letter telling us about your interest in this role. Please also address the following question in your cover letter: What's something you're hoping to do in your career that you haven't yet done? PDN-9648fa55-10bc-4cde-9654-7daa476c507b
