Need a job? Apple and Disney are looking for people who want to work from home

Though this sounds like a phishing scheme, this is an article from Inc on some real jobs being filled by Apple and Disney.

Apple describes the “Home Advisor” as a person who responds when people contact Apple for help. The job description describes ideal candidates as friendly, thoughtful, and real. They are “curious investigators, technical problem solvers, and good listeners” and like the way it feels to help others, have the discipline to manage themselves, can focus in a home environment, and are good multitaskers.

The company requires that you have access to a “quiet, distraction-free work space with a door you can shut, an ergonomic chair, a desk … and your own network connection.”

If you have the right personality, working at home is a huge win-win. You get the convenience and cost savings of working at home. No commute and no moving expenses. And Apple gets a happy employee without the overhead expense.

If this particular job sounds attractive to you (I know it does to me), here’s a link to Apple’s At Home Advisor web site, which includes a video laying out the job and a link to the jobs page.
