Amazon will host its 2020 Career Day on September 16. As a part of the nationwide virtual event, Amazon will give attendees the opportunity to learn about the 33,000 corporate and tech jobs currently available across the country, and the thousands of additional hourly positions in the company’s operations network to be announced soon.
The company said it will also mobilize 1,000 of its recruiters to provide 20,000 career coaching sessions to attendees in a single day. Anyone can participate in Career Day 2020 by going to amazon.jobs/careerday to register and book an appointment with a recruiter.
On top of the one-on-one coaching sessions, Career Day also includes three hours of mainstage programming that will feature fireside chats, panel discussions, and interviews with leading career advice experts and Amazon executives. Starting today, participants will be able to register for live software-code review workshops, as well as breakout sessions to learn more about jobs in Amazon’s growing logistics network.
“COVID-19 continues to affect millions of people across the country, and people are eager for the opportunity to get back to work,” said Beth Galetti, svp/human resources at Amazon. “We’ve created more jobs in the U.S. over the past decade than any other company— and we are continuing to hire people from all backgrounds and at all skill levels. We are glad to be able to mobilize more than 1,000 experienced recruiters and HR professionals to help job seekers across the country learn about opportunities at Amazon and elsewhere.”
Last year, 17,000 job seekers attended Amazon Career Day events in six U.S. cities, and more than 200,000 people applied for jobs in the week leading up to the event. Building on that success, Amazon is taking the event virtual and opening Amazon Career Day 2020 to everyone, regardless of their location.
