NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Amazon says it’s looking to fill hundreds of jobs in Nashville and more than 1,000 across Tennessee.
The company announced that it’s hosting a virtual career day next Wednesday, Sept. 16. Amazon says it’s hiring 527 positions in Nashville and 1,128 across Tennessee.
Nationwide, it’s seeking to fill 33,000 open corporate and tech positions.
During the online event, Amazon says it will mobilize 1,000 recruiters to provide 20,000 career coaching session to attendees.
Attendees will be able to select their fields of interest: hourly roles; tech and non-tech positions at the company’s headquarters, corporate offices, and Tech Hubs; jobs for veterans; and opportunities for students and recent graduates.
The career day will also include three hours of main stage programming that will feature fireside chats, panel discussions, and interviews with leading career-advice experts and Amazon executives. Life coach and “Queer Eye” star Karamo Brown and former pro-football player and NASA astronaut Leland Melvin will headline the event.
Last year, Amazon says 17,000 job seekers attended its career day events in six U.S. cities – and more than 200,000 people applied for jobs in the week leading up to the event.
Anyone can participate in the career day by going to amazon.jobs/careerday to register and book an appointment with an Amazon recruiter.
