Job Seekers: Amazon To Offer More New Jobs

The world’s largest online retailer Amazon.com is set to create more jobs in the United States. Amazon released the good news that it will provide more jobs and will hire 100,000 new employees in the coming months.

Amazon made a press release, which stated that the company aims to strengthen and grow its workforce around 280,000 by mid of 2018. The company will offer new and full-time jobs in the U.S. over the next 18 months. Aside from that, it will also cover full benefits including health care. The jobs available are said to include software developers, top and highly paid engineers, customer service representatives as well as warehouse workers.

According to New York Times, Amazon’s job openings and hiring plans are good news for a lot of people. The company’s new warehouse and fulfillment centers across the country will be able to benefit a lot. Now that more jobs are available, then productivity will also be greater. Thus, it can be of great help for economic growth.

Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos said, “Innovation is one of our guiding principles at Amazon, and it’s created hundreds of thousands of American jobs. These jobs are not just in our Seattle headquarters or in Silicon Valley—they’re in our customer service network, fulfillment centers and other facilities in local communities throughout the country.”

“We plan to add another 100,000 new Amazonians across the company over the next 18 months as we open new fulfillment centers, and continue to invest in areas like cloud technology, machine learning, and advanced logistics.”

Meanwhile, Jobs & Hire shared how you will be able to extend the 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime.
