Job-seekers interested in working for Internet pioneer AbeBooks.com are invited to attend a careers open house on Tuesday, September 21st at the company’s headquarters.
Located in Victoria, AbeBooks is an online marketplace for new, used, rare and out-of-print books. It helped revolutionize how used books are bought and sold. The company was founded in 1996 and acquired by Amazon.com for a reported $100+ Million 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.
Potential customer support employees require a deep commitment to providing exceptional customer service, excellent communication skills and the ability to work in a demanding technology-driven environment. A sound knowledge of Internet-related technologies is vital.
Visitors will have the opportunity to meet Human Resources 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 at the company’s headquarters. There will be a short presentation about working at AbeBooks and refreshments will be offered.
The open house will take place on Tuesday, September 21st from 4:00pm until 6:00pm. AbeBooks is located at Suite 500, 655 Tyee Road close to downtown Victoria. Anyone requiring further details should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
