Amazon hosted a virtual Career Day to help job seekers find and prepare for their next job.

“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 of Human Resources at Amazon.

“We’re continuing to hire people from all backgrounds and at all skill levels, and we're glad to be able to mobilize our team of experienced recruiters and HR professionals to help job seekers across the country learn about opportunities at Amazon and elsewhere.”

The free event was streamed online and included three hours of fireside chats, panels, and discussions with career experts and Amazon executives providing advice, insights, and tips on how to find that next job. 

As well as recorded content, Amazon also offered blogs and articles to help people re-imagine their resume, prepare for interviews, and build their professional brand.

Inside tips on finding the right job


Industry experts from TopResume, The Muse and ZipRecruiter offered their latest inside tips on finding the right job and exploring different career paths.
