Don't have any questions? Begin your search.
How do I apply?
To start, search for a job of interest. You can search by locations, business categories, job categories or keywords. Once you find one, click the "Apply Now" button next to the title of the role at the top of the page.
Then, follow the directions on your screen. Either create a new profile, or log back in if you're a returning candidate.

How do I upload or update my cover letter?
Being a peculiar company, we don't accept cover letters. Just ensure your resume is up to date and you're all set.
What if I don’t have a formal resume or CV to enter into the form?
It's recommended to have a resume or CV. If you don't have a resume, it is still okay to apply. Just be sure to fill in a brief description of your background, experience (with dates of employment), educational achievements, and skills. This information is necessary to evaluate candidates. Applications without this information will not be considered.
If you are interested in a warehouse/associate position in an Amazon Fulfillment Center, you do not need to have a resume to apply. Learn more about the application process here.
Should I send samples of my work (writing, code, designs, etc.) with my resume or CV?
If you're selected for an interview, we may request work samples. If we do, we'll let you know where you should send them. However, if public copies of your work are available for viewing online, including links on your resume is a good idea.
The position I wanted to apply for is no longer listed. Can I still apply?
We regularly post new positions and remove positions that are no longer open. We also actively remove roles that have been filled. If a job is not listed, that means we are no longer taking applications for the position at this time.
What's the status of my application?
We follow federal requirements when we review resumes and only contact candidates we'd like to learn more about. Unfortunately, we're not able to make personal contact with everyone who submits a resume. To check your status, log in to your application profile and review the roles for which you’ve applied.

Can I upload a resume and use my LinkedIn profile?
Applicants can use LinkedIn as an alternative to uploading a traditional resume during profile creation. Unfortunately, we only accept one resume per applicant at this time, so please select the option that works best for you.
My application status hasn't changed. Who can I contact for an update?
Your dashboard is regularly being updated to display the most up-to-date status information relating to each application. When an application status changes, your dashboard is updated in almost real-time to reflect this new status.
When does my application move from Active to Archived?

Most open positions with our subsidiaries are included in amazon.jobs search results. You can search and apply to them from this page on amazon.jobs.
Do you hire contractors, temporary employees, or freelancers?
Yes, we often work with temporary employment agencies for contractors, temporary employees, or freelancers.
To learn about these opportunities, contact leading employment agencies in the cities where Amazon has a presence. We do not provide listings for contractor, temporary, or freelance positions on our site.
Why do I have to make a separate application profile instead of just using my Amazon.com customer login?
We take our customers’ trust and security very seriously. To ensure our customers’ and candidates’ sensitive information is protected, our customer and candidate data are kept completely separate. This is why you need a separate profile to apply for jobs.
Can I still apply if I need a work permit?
Yes, we regularly offer assistance to eligible workers seeking work permits, however, each case is reviewed individually.
