More than 500 jobs in Nashville will be up for grabs at Amazon’s annual Career Day on September 16.

This year, the event will be held virtually. The company has more than 30,000 jobs open nationwide, including 1,128 in Tennessee. 

Jobs start at $15 per hour and include health insurance, up to 20 weeks of parental leave and training opportunities. 

Pre-registration for the three-hour event is available at Amazon recruiters will also provide 20,000 individual career coaching sessions that participants can sign up for at registration.

Career Day will feature speeches from Amazon executives and several discussions with “career advice experts,” the company said. 

“Many Americans need the tools, training, and support to get hired or get back to work,” Amazon Human Resources Senior Vice President Beth Galetti said. “We are mobilizing more than 1,000 experienced recruiters and HR professionals to help job seekers across the country access opportunities at Amazon or elsewhere.”

Thousands of job seekers attended last year’s Amazon job fair in Nashville.
