Jassy said that over 40,000 will be in the United States and the rest will be in countries such as India, Germany and Japan via its job fair ‘Amazon Career Day.’
Jassy, in his first press interview, said that there is a huge demand in retail, the cloud and advertising and since Amazon is launching satellites into orbit to widen broadband access, called Project Kuiper, would require a lot of new hires
“There are so many jobs during the pandemic that have been displaced or have been altered, and there are so many people who are thinking about different and new jobs,” said Jassy, who cited a U.S. survey from PwC that 65% of workers wanted a new gig, according to Reuters.
According to Amazon, the new hiring will lead to a 20% increase in the workforce, which now stands at roughly 275,000 people worldwide.
“Everybody at the company has the freedom – and, the expectation – to critically look at how it can be better and then invent ways to make it better,” Jassy told Reuters.
