Why get a high school Amazon internship?
Having a high school Amazon internship is a great boost. First, because Amazon is a FAANG company and one of the most well-known companies in the world. Beyond being the third most recognized brand globally, it is an e-commerce, artificial intelligence, and cloud computing giant. With a massive presence and a constant need for innovation, it’s no wonder that top tech talent flocks to Amazon year after year.
How To Get A High School Amazon Internship
Amazon does not officially offer a high school Amazon internship. However, there are ways you can still try to secure one. There are multiple Amazon offices in different states.
Here is a list of what countries and U.S states have Amazon software development centers are: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Amazon_locations
If your area is on the list above go to https://www.google.com/maps and type: “amazon offices near me” and click the pins that have “Corporate office” under the star rating. These are the ones you want to call if there is a number. Try to also find people who work for that office on that Amazon corporate office’s website if that office has a website. From what I’ve seen, many of these Amazon corporate offices don’t have an available phone number or website on their Google My Business, so your best bet would be to physically go to that office and talk to people there.
Also, if you know of anyone who works at Amazon it is a great idea to ask them for an internship.
Do note that Amazon fulfillment centers aren’t Amazon corporate offices, so you probably don’t want to call them. An Amazon fulfillment center is an Amazon warehouse where incoming orders are received, stored, packed, and shipped out to customers. If you are looking to get a high school Amazon internship you probably want to get an Amazon SDE internship and not be a delivery person.
The Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship
The Amazon Future Engineer scholarship + internship is an opportunity offered by Amazon that gives you a $40,000 scholarship ($10,000 for each of the 4 years of high school) and a programming internship at Amazon after your freshman year of college. Even though this is not a high school Amazon internship, you would be applying for this opportunity during the fall of your senior year of high school. I actually won this scholarship + internship. You can read my post on how I won the internship here (including my stats, ec’s, and essays). You can apply for the program here: https://www.amazonfutureengineer.com/scholarship
