Amazon Interview AMA with New Amazonians (D1C Alumni, L6-L7 Offers)
This is the first Amazon Interview AMA session hosted by Day One Careers. In this session, we invited four new Amazonians (L6-L7 Offers) and asked them to share their career journeys and insights on how to prepare to answer Amazon interview questions (tips, strategies, etc). All Alumni used a combination of free and paid resources provided by Day One Careers (https://www.dayone.careers). Apologies for the choppy audio and cut-outs at times - this is the nature of doing live sessions over the Internet. I hope you will find the Amazon interview insights useful.

Alumni Interviews: Beee (L6 offer, Amazon UK)
In this episode, I interview one of Day One Careers Alumni, Beee (her Discord nickname). Beee has just accepted an offer to join Amazon UK at an L6 in Product Marketing. In the interview, she talks about her path from FMCG (Consumer Goods) to Tech, her approach to making her professional profile more relevant for Tech, and about preparing for her Amazon interviews. If you are preparing for your Amazon interviews or considering a transition from non-tech to FAANG, I highly recommend that you listen to this interview. As ever, if you'd like to super-charge your Amazon interview preparation, I encourage you to grab this FREE mini-course (https://d1c.io/minicourse) and explore our blog for a range of Amazon interview preparation tips (https://d1c.io/blog).

Amazon Interview Coaching: Dive Deep #2
In this episode, I run a coaching session on Dive Deep (again). My biggest pieces of feedback to the candidate are around (1) making sure to mention the scalable impact of solutions and (2) avoiding the pitfall of coming across as lucky when solving problems (I draw a distinction when being lucky if "good" and when it's "bad"). Check us out at https://www.dayone.careers :)

Amazon Interview Coaching - Earn Trust
In this episode, I run an Amazon Interview coaching session on Earn Trust. While the candidate's story was strong, it would have been a better fit to Insist on the Highest Standard LP. As usual, I offer detailed feedback on how to improve the flow and make sure that the candidate remembers to focus on important details that showcase his experience. === Check us out at https://www.dayone.careers :)
