If you are looking for a new job, Sept. 17 could be your lucky day.

Amazon has announced that it will host Amazon Career Day events on that Tuesday, with plans to hire for and fill 30,000 full-time and part-time permanent jobs nationwide.

Jobs will be located at the company’s headquarters and tech hubs, as well as data centers and fulfillment centers. Open positions range from entry-level to more advanced, such as software development engineers and computer vision scientists.

The jobs pay at least $15 an hour and offer benefits, according to Amazon. For example, the company notes:

“All candidates will have access to on-the-job training and upskilling opportunities as part of the company’s $700 million Upskilling 2025 initiative to help employees gain new skills to build their career.”

Tuesday’s Amazon Career Day events are planned in six locations across the country:

  • Arlington, Virginia (the site of Amazon’s second North American headquarters)
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Nashville
  • Seattle (home to Amazon’s headquarters)

Amazon says the events are open to anyone who wants to learn more about employment opportunities with the retail giant, from those interested in applying for a job at Amazon to people interested in learning about how to start a business delivering packages or selling online.

You can stop by the Career Day webpage to learn more.

Amazon also has announced that in the coming weeks, it will be hiring for tens of thousands of seasonal jobs in its operations network. These jobs will help Amazon meet holiday demand, and they all pay $15 an hour. To learn more about them, visit amazondelivers.jobs.
