Amazon is trying to fill 30,000 available full and part-time jobs in locations across the country by holding an Amazon Career Day in six cities on September 17th.
The six Amazon Career Day events are set to be held in Arlington, Virginia — the site of the company’s second North America headquarters — Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville and Seattle.
These events are geared toward “anyone interested in learning more about opportunities with Amazon, from applying for a job within the company to learning how to start a business delivering packages or selling online,” according to company’s announcement. The jobs pay at least $15 per hour, with competitive benefits, the company says.
Ardine Williams, VP Workforce Development, spoke with The Daily Buzz about the event. “We have a job for just about everyone,” said Williams. “The jobs range from entry level positions to positions working with Alexa and so much more.”
“At Amazon, we have a role to play by creating great jobs that include: a great wage, robust benefits and have a career path for those individuals and there are 30,000 jobs to fill!”
