Kelly Services/Apple Inc.
iOS Senior Technical Advisor

I was part of the Apple@Home Work-From-Home program where I offered consumer support for iPhones, iPads, iCloud, iTunes, and some Mac issues. My day to day in my Tier 1 role was to assist customers with setting up their device, troubleshoot issues and try to upsell AppleCare where applicable. After being promoted to the Tier 2 department, I handled more complex issues and also aided in capturing bugs and devices that seen issues after updates were rolled out to assist Apple Engineering in resolving those.

  • First remote job so had to be a self-starter and had never used an iOS product so went in with zero knowledge of the products I was supporting.
