Amazon Web Services To Help Skilled Students For Job


As tech companies the world over face an acute crunch of skilled workforce in the field of Cloud computing, retail giant Amazon’s Cloud arm, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has decided to go beyond providing training and certification to now help students grab relevant openings in Cloud.

According to Teresa Carlson, Vice President  Worldwide Public Sector at AWS  the time is ripe to connect skilled students with employers via “AWS Educate” – a global initiative to provide students and educators with the resources needed to accelerate Cloud-related learning.

“There are hundreds of thousands of job openings in Cloud computing today. ‘AWS Educate’ will now help students communicate with over 30 potential employers – including Amazon.

With this, AWS Educate goes beyond just training and certification to connect skilled students with the employers and fill the skill gap in Cloud-based technologies,” Carlson told a select gathering at the flagship “AWS ReInvent 2018” event.
