The job market has suffered massive shakeups since the coronavirus outbreak started in America. A majority of adults faced some kind of work disruption, whether they lost their job, some hours, or wages. Millions remain out of work as the economy slowly recovers.
Amazon, one of the leading job creators in the U.S., is looking to help that recovery. The company is not only looking to hire, but also providing valuable resources for job seekers across the country.
Amazon Career Day
The company announced that it will hold its annual career day on September 16th, and Amazon recruiters will provide 20,000 job seekers with individual coaching sessions. While the one-on-one sessions are full, Amazon’s career day also features a series of panels and chats with industry professionals.
The panels are focused on topics like resume building, professional branding, and career reinvention. Amid a changing, disrupted job market, it’s clear that Amazon is focusing on helping people transitioning or struggling for work.
In addition, Amazon is hiring for 33,000 corporate and tech jobs nationwide. Career day attendees will hear about these openings in addition to the coaching and information sessions. Plus, while not yet officially announced, the company expects “thousands of additional hourly roles” in its operations network soon.
“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, Senior Vice President Human Resources at Amazon. “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.”
