Amazon hires thousands of students around the world each year, and this talent is critical to achieving Amazon's mission of being earth's most customer-centric company. The Global Student Programs team’s mission is to attract, hire, and integrate student talent from all backgrounds to build the future of Amazon's global workforce. We are responsible for finding diverse, bar-raising students, delivering a frustration-free candidate experience, and ultimately connecting talent to the most in-demand opportunities at Amazon.
The Student Programs Talent Advisor will serve as the global single-threaded leader for the student hiring needs of one of Amazon’s key lines of business (AWS, WW Consumer, Operations, etc.). This person will partner strategically with senior leaders across HR, Talent Acquisition (TA), Finance, and the customer-facing business, and also with their internal SP team colleagues as the voice of the supported business. The Talent Advisor will be responsible for: 1) designing and owning a refreshed business engagement model with senior leaders in a given business to understand and support student talent needs, 2) supporting HR and TA leaders in forecasting their business demand for student talent - by profile and geography - and ensuring SP quality of hire through accurate profile definition and aligned assessment methods, 3) implementing trusted Amazon mechanisms like MBR/QBR, narratives, and email status updates to keep stakeholders informed and drive meaningful discussion that leads to action, 4) working with global partners to ensure a holistic approach to student hiring and candidate experience, and 5) innovating to launch new initiatives or programs to support the onboarding and integration of student talent into Amazon – thinking big about both candidate experience and the future of Amazon’s global workforce.
The right candidate will Earn Trust, Think Big, Invent & Simplify, and Deliver Results.
We are open to considering candidates based in Arlington, VA, Boston, MA, or Las Vegas, NV.
