AbeBooks’ careers open house on Sept 21
Job-seekers interested in working for Internet pioneer AbeBooks.com are invited to attend a careers open house on Tuesday, September 21 at the company’s headquarters.
Located in Victoria, BC, AbeBooks (as you all know) is an online marketplace for new, used, rare and out-of-print books. The company was founded in 1996 and bought by Amazon.com, Inc. in December 2008.
AbeBooks currently has 10 open positions ranging across several departments, including customer support, marketing, site operations and software engineering. Job-seekers looking for positions in customer support are of particular interest to us.
You need to be committed to offering excellent customer service to book-buyers and booksellers. You’d also better understand the Internet and ecommerce inside out.
Visitors will have the opportunity to meet HR Director Judy Hamza and Shaun Jamieson, Director of Sales and Account Management and Customer Support. Anyone who leaves their resume will be entered into a draw to win $100 worth of books. Rules associated with the draw will be available. There will be a short presentation about working at AbeBooks and refreshments will be offered.
The open house will take place on Tuesday, September 21 from 4pm until 6pm. AbeBooks is located at Suite 500, 655 Tyee Road, Victoria, BC, V9A 6X5 – close to downtown Victoria. Anyone requiring further details should email firstname.lastname@example.org
(By the way, I have worked here for five and a half years. AbeBooks is an excellent place to work but we don’t just take anyone. We’re looking for people with real talent and drive, who get things done.)
