ABOUT AMAZON
ABOUT THE HIRE OUR HEROES CORPORATE FELLOWSHIP (HOH CFP) PROGRAM

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, a non-profit organization, launched the Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) initiative in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans, and transitioning service members find meaningful employment opportunities, mainly through grassroots engagement such as hiring fairs and events. In 2015, a pilot cohort of the Corporate Fellowship Program launched out of Joint Base Lewis McChord from a local agency, aiming to connect experienced leaders from the military with management-level corporate positions, was developed under the guidelines of the Department of Defense’s SkillBridge job training program. In 2017 the Corporate Fellowship Program was incorporated under the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes initiative to provide transitioning service members with management training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce, expanding corporate America's understanding of the veteran job market and preparing those individuals for smooth transitions into meaningful civilian careers.
Amazon has been sponsoring the Corporate Fellowship Program from the very beginning in 2015 and has continued to sponsor it to present day under the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. The program is expanding quickly across the U.S. launching into different parts of the nation every year and is now serving the military community and businesses around the US! Program details below:
· Selected candidates for the Area Manager role will be trained within an Amazon operation site. Projected training sites will be in/around Stockton, CA.
· After successful completion of the program, the selected Area Managers will be placed in Stockton, CA.
