Hope this is the right place for this question. I've been working as a genius for 1 year. Today I was offered an internship for a position I have been working for the past month and a half. The internship is an opportunity for me to prove myself worthy of a full-time position, as I have 4 years of IT experience but 0 in the dev world. While I have built up a full-time job at Apple to take a chance with my career experiences, this is the opportunity of the largest private technology company in my region, and will certainly be a huge opportunity for me professionally.
As I signed on, I was told that Apple retail employees cannot be part of the Apple Developer program. I have seen conflicting answers to this case online, and hoped that I could get some clarity before I approach my leaders with the situation. Financially, the best move would be to do both jobs, but I don't want it to be contract conflicts that cause problems for me / the company. Have any experience or insight they can throw themselves into this matter?
