Q. I've always called in to let my AE know I was available for work, but she told me about some new way to do it on your web site. I can't find the address though. Where is it?

A. It's very important to keep us up-to-date with respect to your availability. We know that work availability changes from day to day and from week to week, so we give first assignment priority to people who have recently confirmed their availability. You can use our On-line Availability system by going to http://www.appleone.com/status. It's quick and convenient and you don't have to worry about trying to find times to call when your rep isn't in interviews or out meeting with client companies working to find you a job.
