Why You Want to Work at Amazon

Why You Want to Work at Amazon

After read­ing the recent New York Times arti­cle  Inside Ama­zon: Wrestling Big Ideas in a Bruis­ing Work­place  it occurred to me that the arti­cle wasn’t real­ly about Ama­zon being a dif­fi­cult place to work but rather the sto­ry of Ama­zon being the place to be to pre­pare for tomorrow’s work­place. In the not too dis­tant future most com­pa­nies will be run by com­put­ers.  Yes there will still be peo­ple man­ag­ing the com­put­ers but most of the work will be done by the machines, which will replace many of the cur­rent employ­ees. Ama­zon is one of the most advanced com­pa­nies in the world regard­ing automa­tion of busi­ness process­es and deci­sion mak­ing. Based on the New York Times arti­cle it appears that Ama­zon has already imple­ment­ed many process­es that future com­pa­nies will be man­aged by. While many tech com­pa­nies appear to be mov­ing in this direc­tion,  I believe Ama­zon has advanced the most towards the future com­pa­ny employ­ment world. Data and algo­rithms dri­ve much of the deci­sion mak­ing at the com­pa­ny.  Vir­tu­al­ly all the pric­ing and prod­uct dis­play deci­sions you see on the Ama­zon web­site are sole­ly made by algo­rithms. Ama­zon is where you could be trained to be the next gen­er­a­tion exec­u­tive. At Ama­zon…

New Media Jobs — The answer to making money during the recession

New media jobs appear to be the way for­ward in this reces­sion we are cur­rent­ly expe­ri­enc­ing. The media indus­try, although being hit hard as oth­er indus­tries have been, forc­ing news­pa­pers such as the Rocky Moun­tain News and mag­a­zines such as Are­na to close down, is mak­ing a come­back with new media jobs. New media jobs are not exact­ly new to the media world, but when you think of the tra­di­tion­al media jobs and back­grounds, they are new by this com­par­i­son. New media jobs encom­pass every­thing dig­i­tal, every­thing that is based online, reach­ing towards tele­vi­sion and video and all the tech­no­log­i­cal know how that goes with them. New media jobs are basi­cal­ly all that is not tra­di­tion­al media such as news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines and print media. With no costs for pub­lish­ing or dis­tri­b­u­tion, new media jobs are on the rise in pop­u­lar­i­ty and avail­abil­i­ty. More increas­es can be seen in the amount of users who are turn­ing to online resources instead of buy­ing the local paper, keep­ing new media jobs active. This is obvi­ous­ly prov­ing detri­men­tal to print net­works, but the vir­tu­al world is reap­ing the ben­e­fits, as are new media jobs and the lucky peo­ple who have them. It makes…
