Amazon Will Host its First-Ever ‘Career Day’ in Canada
There’s good news for Canadians with high hopes of scoring a job at Amazon.
Get those resumes ready, because the ever-growing e-commerce giant is hosting its first-ever Career Day in Canada on Wednesday, September 15.
The best part? Business attire isn’t required, and you can do the whole thing from the comfort of your home.
The virtual event will give job seekers a behind-the-scenes look at the 1,800+ corporate, technology, and operations jobs currently open across Canada. It is designed to support all job seekers, regardless of their level of experience, or whether they are looking for a new job or hoping to transition to a different career altogether – at Amazon or another company.
On top of the 30,000 free one-on-one career coaching sessions from a team of over 2,000 Amazon recruiters globally (including Canada, naturally), Career Day also includes a variety of panel sessions, keynote addresses, and fireside chats, introducing participants to Canadian employees working in a variety of roles across the business.
The event will also feature notable guest speakers, like two-time Olympic medalist Jennifer Abel, who will share advice on setting career objectives, and Amazon CEO Andy Jassy, who will participate in a fireside chat on his own career experiences.
“For somebody who loves to build, invent and be part of a collaborative team that delivers exceptional products and services to customers, Amazon is an exciting place to work. Amazon Career Day will be an opportunity for Canadians to discover the breadth of jobs available across the country, and how we invest to help employees build new skills and benefit from personal success, growth, and empowerment,” said Jesse Dougherty, Amazon VP.
The lucky set of Toronto job seekers who score a coveted position will likely call Amazon’s additional new 100,000-square-feet of office space home.
Amazon Career Day event is open to anyone and they can register for free by visiting amazoncareerday.com. The event will simultaneously take place in nine other countries.
