In today’s marketplace, growing companies are facing serious challenges in finding the right talent. It’s more important now than ever before for companies to understand the opportunity a recruitment strategy can provide.
Amazon global has partnered with female-focused Fintech platform Herconomy to provide an opportunity for talented professional Nigerian women“ to inspire, reinvent and challenge themselves to make a mark”.
In its first-of-its-kind recruitment drive for women professionals who are looking for job opportunities; Herconomy announced its recruitment partnership with giant online retailer, Amazon. This is a global partnership that will open doors for Nigerian women to be recruited across Europe by Amazon. Herconomy showcased about 45 job opportunities open to Nigerians ( both men and women) and Africans to work within and outside the continent, Europe, and the Middle East.
However, there has only been feedback from less than 10 people who made it to the interview stage and secured a job.
In light of this, the “Amazon Recruitment Week” was set up to shed more light, knowledge and insight into the opportunities available at the global brand.
Throughout this week, the Amazon team will speak with the Herconomy community and help them understand and appreciate that their skills, experience and expertise are valuable. Useful insights will be shared on proper interview techniques in order to equip them to be able to clinch their dream jobs at Amazon or even with other big technology firms.
“It’s not a coincidence we’ve started this drive as we lead up to women’s month and indeed International Women’s day 2022. I’m encouraging women to take up space and break the bias! If you have foundational skills which you are passionate about and wish to develop into specialized streams, we invite you to apply and be part of the drive. The Herconomy team is here to guide you through the various steps.” – Ife Durosinmi – Etti (Founder Hercomy).
Herconomy in partnership with Amazon is now hosting the Amazon Recruitment Week where professionals and recruiters from Amazon will be speaking to attendees on their individual ‘Amazon story’ and of course their interview process across board.
We entreat everyone who would like to know what it takes to be part of arguably the most consistently profitable company in the world of the last decade to join at any time this week.
Sessions begin 11:00 a.m (WAT) every day from the 28th of February to the 4th of March 2022 on Zoom. This is a free event to join and is open to both men and women.
