The job openings will be available across corporate, technology, customer service, and operations roles.
In an interview Deepti Varma, HR Leader, Corporate, APAC, and MENA, Amazon said that, “Our commitment in India is that we will create around 20 lakh direct and indirect jobs by 2025. We’ve already created around 10 lakh direct and indirect jobs. Even during the pandemic, we had nearly created around 3 lakh direct and indirect jobs across technologies, content creation, retail, logistics, and manufacturing. The whole Career Day event is designed to support all job seekers when they are looking for new jobs or sometimes they're also wanting to transition into a different career. This is an opportunity for them to understand Amazon better”.
“Apart from India, Amazon is also hosting its job fest which is also known as Career Day in countries including Japan, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, UK, and Canada. “From the past two years, Career Day has been hosted in the US. Looking at the response the event was receiving across different Amazon geographies, we decided that we will scale it up beyond the U.S,” she added.
