Apple joins Google in quest for BlackBerry engineers

Apple begins poaching BlackBerry engineers via Linkedin (NASDAQ:AAPL, NASDAQ:BBRY, NASDAQ:GOOG, NYSE:LNKD)

Following in Google's footsteps, Apple is looking to gain from BlackBerry's ongoing demise. Unlike Google who opened up an engineering hub just down the road from BlackBerry, Apple is looking to poach employees from the failing company via LinkedIn.

Just days after BlackBerry announced that it would be laying off more than 4500 employees, Apple began sending out invitations via LinkedIn to a recruitment event that was being held just 15-minutes down the road from BlackBerry headquarters. Normally, poaching employees is frowned upon, but with BlackBerry now resuming talks of being split up and sold off, I am sure that these engineers see these acts from Google and Apple as a blessing.

 

The entire invitation read as follows:

 

If you are interested in working on the world's most advanced mobile devices and operating systems as well as alongside other amazing, talented and passionate engineers then Apple may have opportunities for you.
