The Tallahassee-Leon County Office of Economic Vitality (OEV) is thrilled to announce the launch of an exciting series of Amazon Pre-Hiring ‘Information Sessions’ aimed at providing valuable insights and resources to job seekers in our community.

The series will kick off on Tuesday, June 27 at 11:00 AM, with an engaging and interactive event at the Dr. B.L. Perry, Jr. Branch Library located at 2817 S. Adams Street. Attendees will hear from Amazon representatives, learn about the company’s culture, explore available career paths, and participate in a Q&A session.   
 
OEV recognizes the significance of Amazon’s presence in our region, and we are dedicated to ensuring that local talent has access to the opportunities created by this global e-commerce giant.  

“Over 1,000 full-time job opportunities, with a competitive starting rate of $16 an hour, will be released in the following months to staff the new Amazon facility in Tallahassee,” stated Keith Bowers, Director of the Office of Economic Vitality. “These sessions present an invaluable opportunity for job seekers to glean insights from Amazon representatives, enabling them to successfully navigate the hiring process and increase their chances of securing these highly rewarding positions.”
