Apple is opening applications for work from home positions

More and more companies are offering the option to work from home, and those positions can seem particularly enticing during summer months when life's overall vibe just seems more relaxed and at ease.

Work from home positions also offer another benefit to many — an opportunity to work for a major company that wouldn't have otherwise presented itself.

Following suit with Amazon's announcement that it would be hiring thousands of remote positions, Apple announced that it would be hiring full-time employees to work remotely under the title of "AppleCare at Home Advisor."

So what exactly does this position entail? According to the job description:

"'ll be the friendly voice of Apple, answering questions about our products and services and providing world-class customer service, troubleshooting, and technical support. We'll rely on you to listen to our customers and use your technical expertise, creativity, and passion to meet their needs — and remind them that behind our great products are amazing people."

Basic requirements include:

"Minimum 2 years professional technical troubleshooting expertise or proven technical ability, Experience supporting customers via phone, e-mail, chat, and/or in person, Passion for customer service and ownership of the customer experience including comprehensive issue resolution."

Full benefits and perks are also part of the package, though we can't guarantee Apple will come and set up a fully-stocked kitchen for you in your own home.

Worth a shot, though!
