Signs Your Resume Is "Old School"

Don't miss out on interview opportunities because of an out-of-date resume.

Amazon on Tuesday reported earnings that significantly missed Wall Street estimates, and its ramped-up hiring certainly plays a role in that. The company added 8,000 employees in the third quarter and has more than doubled headcount in the past two years, GeekWire reports. It now employs more than 50,000 people full and part time.

 

Of course, many of those jobs are at the Seattle company's regional fulfillment centers, positions that don't have the best reputation. For instance, the company continues to defend itself against worker claims that its Pennsylvania warehouse is unsafe. The company this week said that added air-conditioning units and improved procedures have made it a safer place to work than a department store.

 

And the company continues to hire. I found 133 positions listed on its LinkedIn page, including a number of engineering jobs. And this FINS piece on the many job opportunities in cloud computing notes that Amazon has been staffing up rapidly with enterprise account managers, small- and medium-business reps, technical product specialists and solutions architects.
