Hiring & Training
Amazon is hiring refugees across the globe and is committed to expanding its refugee hiring and training for all skill levels through a variety of initiatives and nonprofit partnerships. For example, Amazon is hiring refugees in fulfillment and transportation roles, and offering training programs that make these roles a springboard into a long-term career. In addition, Amazon provides access to free training to refugees through the Amazon Web Services’ re/Start Program, a free full-time 12-week program that prepares unemployed or underemployed individuals for careers in cloud computing and connects graduates with job interview opportunities.
In 2021, Amazon joined the Tent Coalition for Afghan Refugees, committing to explore hiring and training opportunities for Afghans in the U.S..
