Amazon To Help Employees Get An Education

Amazon has introduced a new program called the Amazon Career Choice Program, which is designed to help employees expand their career horizons.

AppNewser has more: “Aimed at fulfillment center employees and seasonal employees who have come in through CamperForce, employees who have worked with Amazon for three years or more qualify to have 95 percent of their tuition paid in courses for careers including, ‘aircraft mechanics, computer-aided design, machine tool technologies, medical lab technologies, nursing, and many other fields.’”

In a letter addressed to customers, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos writes: “Many of our fulfillment center employees will choose to build their careers at Amazon. For others, a job at Amazon might be a step towards a career in another field. We want to make it easier for employees to make that choice and pursue their aspirations. It can be difficult in this economy to have the flexibility and financial resources to teach yourself new skills.”
