To Fill 30,000 Jobs, Amazon Plans Hiring Events in 6 Cities

Amazon's job fair will take place in Dallas on Sept. 17

The online shopping giant is looking to fill more than 30,000 vacant jobs by early next year, and is holding job fairs in six U.S. cities next week to find candidates.

The jobs range from software engineers, who can earn more than $100,000 a year, to warehouse workers who are paid at least $15 an hour to pack and ship online orders.

Amazon said all of the openings are for full time positions with benefits. It says it's the most positions it has had open at one time.

The job fairs will take place Sept. 17 in Arlington, Virginia, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville and Seattle.
