Looking for a job? Amazon is planning to hire 30,000 people

Looking for a job can be a time-consuming and stressful process. There are resumes to update, forms to fill out, websites to visit, numbers to call — you know the drill.

But what if we told you the process is being made a heck of a lot easier for those looking for work? Even better, you’d be working for one of the largest and most respected corporations in the country.

Yep, we’re talking about e-commerce giant Amazon. The company is holding a massive hiring event next week and you have the chance to take part. We’ll tell you everything you need to know from what types of jobs are open and how much you could make.

Amazon Career Day

Amazon recently announced its Career Day event that will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 17. The company said, “Discover how you can come build the future with us at an Amazon Career Day event near you.”

The bad news is the events are only being held in six cities. Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, Seattle and Arlington, VA. If you’re near one of these cities, it would be worth checking out.

If you can’t make the event, don’t worry – you still have a chance to work for Amazon. Tap or click to see all open jobs with Amazon. There are even some work-from-home opportunities.

Why these Amazon job fairs are important

If you attend the Amazon job fair, you can learn about over 30,000 positions that are needed to be filled. That includes full and part-time jobs.

And these aren’t temporary, seasonal jobs that normally get filled to ramp up over the holidays. We’re talking about permanent positions that come with benefits.

Open positions range from warehouse workers that make at least $15 per hour to software engineers that can earn over $100,000 per year.

You might not know this, but Amazon has a $15 minimum wage. So, if you’re looking to get in on the ground floor or just want a part-time gig to make some extra money, this could be a good opportunity.

Plus, the company offers a way to take control of your career path with its career development program. You can learn new skills through Amazon-funded upskilling opportunities.

Here are some of the  jobs Amazon is looking to fill:

  • Software development
  • Sales, advertising and account management
  • Project management
  • Marketing
  • Human resources
  • Finance and accounting
  • Editorial, writing and content management
  • Customer service
  • Database administration

Those are just some of the jobs Amazon is looking to fill. Tap or click here to learn more about Amazon Career Day and register for a location near you. Good luck!
