If you are younger than 60, your most valuable asset is likely your Human Capital: the present value of your future professional earnings from the current point in time, to the end of your career. Becoming a full-time Amazon employee will transform your life and boost your Human Capital like few other options could. This is where we can be of service to you: we know Amazon’s culture and the Amazon interview process, and can teach you an interview mental model to help you excel in your Amazon interview and become an Amazonian.
"The Complete Workshop to Prepare for the Amazon Interview" is a laser-focused exercise that will help you describe and quantify your professional career in a crystal-clear way that Amazon will understand and appreciate. You will go through a deeply customized Amazon interview preparation and craft your responses in Amazon’s behavioral SOAR (Situation - Obstacle - Action - Results) interview format. You will participate in Leadership-Principle case studies and describe your top professional accomplishments and failures in the SOAR output.
You will also undergo a mock interview with a former Amazon Bar Raiser, asking you real Amazon interview questions, and followed by a written debrief evaluation with a Hire/No-hire decision, based on your performance.
As an optional add-on for technical candidates, a former Amazon employee from your functional track (SDE, SDM, SA, TPM, etc.) and seniority level, will interview you with relevant Amazon interview questions for your respective function.
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.
