In 2013, I emailed the CEO and Senior Vice President of Apple with a bunch of bugs and inconsistencies that I found in their software. An Apple iOS recruiter subsequently contacted me, and within 7 months, Apple created a position for me to be an iOS Engineer in Sydney. Mind you - I am not an engineer. And I never even finished my degree at university. I left university because I found I wasn't learning. And I left even though I had a $20,000 scholarship and was in a leadership program. Education is so important yet is super dated. Video created by Hunting With Pixels. Hunting With Pixels is a Sydney and Melbourne based social video strategy and production agency.
