Amazon has recently announced plans to hire 80,000 holiday workers through their national network of distribution centers.

Now is the time to focus on securing some of those opportunities for our clients.

Higher Peer Advisor and IRC Senior Employment Specialist Christina Caspersen learned that they require proof of a GED and strong English skills when she attended an HR briefing about the new distribution facility opening in Baltimore.

Here are links to three useful places to learn more.  Good luck!
