Happy new iPhone day! I’m like a kid on Christmas any day Apple has a keynote event. Some people may think that an announcement about the latest and greatest phone is trivial, but one analyst at J.P. Morgan seems to think that the iPhone 5 “could potentially add between 1/4 to 1/2%-point to fourth quarter annualized GDP growth.” I think that the impact could be more than that if the rumors about the iPhone 5 are true. Word is that they’re changing the size/shape and the dock connector. Anyone who buys the iPhone 5 will have to buy all new accessories too. That’s good news for a company like M-Edge, which is an Odenton, MD based company that “sells fashionable, protective cases for e-readers, tablets, and cell phones.” They came it at #91 on the Inc. 500 by riding Apple and Amazon’s wave to 3,185% three-year growth and $37.2 million in revenue.
One of the fun parts about job searching (yes, it CAN be fun) is starting with an idea and following it through the economy. Today’s Apple keynote is a great place to start. Landing a job at Apple is extremely difficult, but where else can your love of consumer electronics take you? Think of all of the products that have been created specifically for iPhones–apps, speakers, headphones, hands-free headsets, chargers, cases, arm bands, and sleep tracking devices are just the tip of the iceberg. There is an entire economy built off of Apple products (and those from other manufacturers as well), and you can spend all day exploring it and looking for opportunities. M-Edge is a perfect example of how significant the market is–and they’re just one of many in the accessories business. What I like about them specifically is that they offer the option to customize your accessories. That’s a big deal for people who like to show off their individuality. Now most of the positions posted on M-Edge’s Careers page require significant experience, but there is a posting for General Admin that looks like it could be a good way to get your foot in the door. M-Edge was named “one of the Top Places to Work Award in 2011 by The Baltimore Sun,” so it’s well worth reaching out.
