Help Wanted! Amazon Second Life Job Fair - July 14, 2009
For sellers who are interested in working for Amazon, we are hosting our first virtual job fair on Second Life. The Job Fair will take place on Tuesday, July 14th and will run from 6 AM to Midnight, PST. Jeff (avatar name Jeffronius Batra) from Amazon Web Services provides additional information about the event in his blog post.
“It’s a free event and a unique opportunity for candidates to have direct access to hiring managers and recruiters from around the world. Amazon is looking for all levels of technical and non-technical candidates – from hands-on engineers to program managers and game-changing principal architects. Visit our career site to see the open positions and then make plans to join us in-world. We'll be doing first-round virtual interviews (the equivalent of a phone screen) for real-world jobs.
The Job Fair will take place on the Amazon Developers 2 island. You will need to create an avatar and then download the client in order to attend. You may also want to spend some time with the Second Life Quickstart Guide a day or so before the fair.”
