What is Amazon Career Choice?

Career Choice is an education benefit that empowers employees to learn new skills for career success. Amazon provides a variety of education and upskilling opportunities including pre-paid college tuition, industry certifications designed to lead to in-demand jobs, and foundational skills such as English language, high school diplomas, and GEDs after working for the company for 90 days. Career Choice benefits include:

  • Pre-paid tuition and reimbursement of books and fees up to an annual maximum.
  • Limitless learning, with no limit to the number of years you can utilize the benefit as long as you’re employed by Amazon.
  • Fast starts, with eligible Amazon employees able to participate in Career Choice after only 90 days of employment.
  • Aligned program offerings to internal roles and career pathways, offering opportunities for employees to pursue their careers within Amazon or elsewhere.

Amazon’s Career Choice program launched in 2012 and has since met the following milestones.

  • In the U.S., Amazon is investing $1.2 billion to upskill more than 300,000 employees by 2025 to help move them into higher-paying, in-demand jobs.
  • Amazon’s Career Choice program works with numerous education providers across the U.S., which includes colleges and universities, partners providing industry certifications, English language proficiency, and high school completion programs.
  • Career Choice is now live in 14 countries (Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, United Kingdom, and U.S.) and works with over 300 educational providers globally.
  • More than 90,000 Amazon employees have participated globally since inception (more than 60,000 in the U.S.).
  • Healthcare, transportation, and information technology are the Career Choice program’s most popular fields of study globally.
