If you want to be hired by Amazon, if you want to have an amazing professional journey there and work on incredibly ambitious and innovative projects (and, as a by-product, earn hundreds of thousands of dollars, maybe a million or more), then this course is for you. What makes this course different from anything else you would encounter, is our deep knowledge of the Amazon culture and the Amazon interview process. This course is designed by a former Amazon Bar Raiser with a five-year tenure at the company.
By the end of The Essential Course, you will be able to effectively present your professional experience in Amazon's behavioral interview format, and confidently respond to the Amazon interview questions. Most importantly, you will accumulate a portfolio with proven practice materials and written responses, all of which are based on the very way Amazon interviews candidates today, and all of which will give you a strong edge in your Amazon interview preparation.
Nick Dimitrov is a former Amazon Bar Raiser, one of a small and select number of Amazonians who decide whether the company should hire a job candidate or not. He has interviewed more than 350 job applicants and determined whether they raised the Amazon hiring bar.
