seeking candidates to fill 30 tech jobs at the company’s office in downtown Detroit. The team will be at Career and Employment Services in the Joyce Entrepreneurship Centre from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A graduate of the UWindsor computer science co-op program now working for Amazon identified the campus as a source of career-ready talent to fill these full-time positions, says Meagan Haugh, co-ordinator of co-op program development.

“Our School of Computer Science has an established undergrad and graduate co-op program, as well as an internship in the Master of Applied Computing program, each producing experienced tech-savvy students and graduates,” she says.

Amazon representatives will also host a “Rock the Technical Interview Workshop” with tips on how to set yourself apart in a technical interview. The half-hour event will start at 11:30 a.m. in the Joyce Centre’s room 239.

Haugh says the day is a great chance for students: “Even if you are not currently searching for employment, this is an excellent opportunity to speak with Amazon employees to learn about work in the industry, future career trends and do some networking.”
