Chad Jones of Push Interactions in Saskatoon won’t soon forget his job interview with Apple in Silicon Valley. It lasted eight hours and included interviews with many different people that day; the most complex part of it involved questions in both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at once (Jones has degrees in both).

Jones got the job at Apple and gained valuable experience before returning to his hometown to create and launch the first university class in iPhone programming in Canada (only the third in North America).
