Amazon has announced a gigantic career day on September 15 and 16, 2021. The company intends to hire somewhere between 40,000 and 55,000 people, so there will be all sorts of positions available.

Which day you attend the career day will depend on where you live. In the US, the event takes place on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, at 12:00 pm ET. It’s scheduled to end at 2:30 pm ET, so Amazon has a lot of stuff to cram into the two-and-a-half-hour event.

The company was pretty vague regarding exactly what positions it’s looking to fill, though it did say there are various corporate, tech, and hourly positions available to people at all career levels. You can look at the Amazon job page for an idea of the positions Amazon currently has open, though there could be other ones open during its career day.

Not only will the event cover Amazon jobs, but it’ll also feature general career advice that can be applied to other companies as well. For example, there’s a workshop called “Resume 101: Setting the Conditions for Success,” where the company will have its career coaching experts talk about how to best promote yourself in your resume.

There’s even a class about interviewing at Amazon and other companies. Even if Amazon isn’t a company you’re interested in working for, there might be some value in this career day, as the knowledge you gain can be used for future job searches.

Even Amazon CEO Andy Jassy will offer career advice and talk about his path at Amazon. It sounds like an excellent digital event and one that’s worth attending if you’re in the market for a new job.
