Amazon is hosting its 2020 Career Day on Wednesday, September 16th and for the first time the event is open to Canadian job seekers.
As a part of the North America-wide virtual event, Amazon will give participants the opportunity to learn more about the nearly 800 corporate and tech jobs currently available in Canada, with additional hourly positions in the company’s operations network to be announced soon.
Amazon will mobilize 1,000 of its recruiters to provide 20,000 career coaching sessions to attendees in a single day.
Attendees will be able to apply for a wide range of roles at Amazon, with recruiters on hand to talk about entry-level positions in the company’s operations network, corporate roles at its Tech Hubs in Vancouver and Toronto; as well as engineering, data science, marketing, human resources, and finance roles that support Alexa, Amazon Advertising, AWS, Operations Technology, and Prime Video.
On top of the 20,000 one-on-one coaching sessions, Career Day will also include three hours of mainstage programming that will feature fireside chats, panel discussions, and interviews with leading career-advice experts and Amazon executives.
“For somebody who loves to build, invent, and create value for customers, Amazon is an exciting place to grow your career. We’re proud to offer quality jobs for Canadians while investing in economic recovery,” said Jesse Dougherty, Amazon VP and Vancouver Site Lead.
Amazon currently employs more than 21,000 full- and part-time employees at the company’s fulfillment centres, corporate offices, development centres, and other facilities in Ontario, B.C., Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec.
Anyone can participate in Career Day 2020 by registering online and booking an appointment with an Amazon recruiter.
