Internship Overview
AWS  is looking to hire and develop the next generation of leaders for our  organization. We are seeking talented and enthusiastic students who are  passionate about solving business problems, innovating and building new  processes, and leading high-impact initiatives. The Next Gen Internship  Program allows you to gain exposure to the AWS business and our unique  Amazonian culture through a rewarding learning experience.

As an  intern, you will independently own a key business project that can  drive business value, and tasks to support your assigned team. You will  hone your leadership and presentation skills, and apply your creativity  to innovate for our business. At the end of your internship, all interns  will present their project learnings and proposal to a panel of AWS  leaders.

Business Development
As a Next Gen Business  Development Intern, you will bring passion for digital transformation,  cloud computing services and the opportunity to shape industry-specific  messaging, solutions and assets for the ANZ market segment. You will  develop business acumen, presentation delivery, and learn more about  Amazon culture through working on a real business project. Are you ready  to embrace the challenge?

Upon successful completion of the  internship program, select interns will receive a full-time offer to  join as a Next Gen Graduate after completion of your Degree.

Amazon internships are full-time (38 hours/week) for 10-12 consecutive weeks, from late November 2022-mid February 2023.

Mentorship & Career Growth
Our  team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of  experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that  celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy  one-on-one mentoring. We care about your career growth and strive to  assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a  better-rounded employee and enable them to take on more complex tasks in  the future.

Here at AWS, we embrace  our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of  inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000  employees in over 190 chapters globally.

Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced  within our Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek  diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Harmony
Our  team puts a high value on work-life harmony. It isn’t about how many  hours you spend at home or at work; it’s about the flow you establish  that brings energy to both parts of your life.
