Congratulations on becoming a new full-time Amazonian. You certainly must be excited to begin your new professional journey with Amazon. On the other hand, you might have heard that Amazon could be a tough place to do well, and particularly tough to thrive and excel. Therefore, in addition to being extremely excited by the prospects awaiting you, you might also be concerned if you’ll start on the right foot and how long it might take you to acclimate and succeed at your new company.

If this is you and if this sounds familiar, you should enroll in our course “For New Amazonians." We will share with you actionable techniques that will transform your first year at Amazon into a highly efficient and productive experience. This course will teach you proven tactical steps that you can immediately use to deliver results and generate a track record that will help you stand out when compared not only to other Amazon new hires, but even to some Amazon veterans around you.
