Amazon To Boost Hiring Initiatives With Career Day Event

Amazon is kicking off its Amazon Career Day on Tuesday, September 17, a series of events across the U.S. where anyone can learn more about the 30,000 full and part-time jobs available at Amazon in locations across the country, from the company’s headquarters and tech hubs to data centers and fulfillment centers.

There are jobs for people with all types of experience, education, and skill levels, from entry-level roles at Amazon’s fulfillment centers working with the latest robotics technology, software development engineers helping make Alexa smarter, or computer vision scientists building the technology behind Amazon Go. All candidates will have access to on-the-job training and upskilling opportunities as part of the company’s $700 million Upskilling 2025 initiative to help employees gain new skills to build their career.

The company said it will hold six Amazon Career Day events across the U.S. where candidates can learn more about the career opportunities. The events on September 17 are in Arlington, the site of the company’s second headquarters in North America, as well as Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, and Seattle.

Additionally, Amazon is starting to hire for tens of thousands of seasonal roles for its operations network in the coming weeks to meet increased demand for the holiday season.

“Amazon has created more than 300,000 new jobs in the U.S. over the last decade, and we’re proud to continue investing and creating opportunities for people across the country,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “These are jobs with highly competitive compensation and full-benefits from day one, as well as training opportunities to gain new skills in high-demand fields such as robotics and machine learning.”
