Over the past 18 years, Amazon has systematically went from selling books to becoming the largest internet retail store by revenue to date. Amazon’s convenience has proved devastating to brick and mortar giants such as Walmart and Target, which seemed unstoppable only 5-10 years ago. This leaves Amazon with big shoes to fill and the opportunity to grow into them. How does this relate to us at Penn State Lehigh Valley? With this growth comes more opportunity for the youth to join a strong company and rise through the ranks to success as there is now an Amazon warehouse close by in Allentown which is in need of work. Being such a strong company, Amazon is able to give at least $10 an hour minimum for the likes of full time warehouse work and can provide even more for management positions and engineers. The beauty of this company being an online retail store is that they require a steady flow of new faces from the technology background to keep their website, servers, cloud, and security system up to date and functional. Amazon is also providing the opportunity to people still in college to prove their worth and gain experience with their internships which include software development engineer, linux cloud support engineer, design, security, machine learning, and many more. The perfect opportunity to become successful at a company starts with joining it while the getting is good. With its diversity of options for many fields of work and its commitment to helping their employees blossom, I believe Amazon just may be the right path for one of you.
