A Welcome Change to the Job Market
You already know this, but the past couple of years haven't been easy on the job market. So many New Jerseyans were left jobless because of the pandemic - a quick Google search with information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows over 320,000 people to be exact, with the highest it ever was over 740,000. Insane. It's time for a change, and this is a welcome one.
Amazon Announces MASSIVE Career Day Hiring Event
Amazon's already been building warehouse centers in New Jersey, and they aren't stopping there. The company announced Career Day - a HUGE hiring event that's taking place tomorrow, September 15th. They're planning on filling 8,700 positions in NJ. And the perks are awesome.
If I Work at Amazon, What's in it For Me?

health, vision, and dental insurance, 401(k) with 50% company match, up to 20 weeks paid parental
16 leave, and Amazon's Career Choice program, in which the company will pay full college tuition for its front-line employees as
17 part of $1.2 billion investment to expand education and skills training benefits for its U.S. workforce.
