Amazon welcomes first graduates of program to turn veterans into technologists

But the five former armed service members represent the lengths the Seattle giant will go to satisfy its insatiable appetite for workers.Cooper, a 31-year-old Coast Guard veteran, and his colleagues are—after a brief ceremony on Wednesday morning—Amazon’s newest hires, the first graduates of a program designed to shepherd veterans into careers in in-demand technology jobs. The cohort join Amazon Web Services as cloud support associates, helping customers who use the cloud-computing platform to troubleshoot problems.”This is just five,” said Ardine Williams, a vice president who oversees human resources for Amazon’s worldwide operations network, herself a former Army captain. “It’s just the beginning.”Another beginning was in 2016, when two members of Williams’ team suggested the company look into veterans’ apprenticeships to fill jobs at fast-growing Amazon Web Services.They secured certification from the Department of Labor, a necessary hurdle to receive government support for such job training programs, and unveiled the new initiative in January 2017. The program, announced amid a White House push for companies to hire more veterans, also coincided with the technology sector’s own initiative to increase the pool of employees with the skills to fill fast-growing job roles in areas like cloud computing and data science. In Washington state, meanwhile, Gov. Jay Inslee, who spoke at Amazon’s event on Wednesday, has pushed apprenticeships as an important tool to better train the state’s workforce.Amazon enlisted Apprenti, the partly federally funded apprenticeship program overseen by the Washington Technology Industry Association, to help manage its own training. Recruits spent three months in the classroom before going into a paid, 12-month apprenticeship to develop expertise on-the-job.Cooper, who also worked as a paramedic after leaving the Coast Guard, figures the apprenticeship saved him tens of thousands of dollars in tuition he otherwise would have paid to get the same experience and certifications.”It hasn’t always been fun,” Cooper said of the program. “At no point has it been easy.”Clarifying his quip—to many, also a pretty accurate description of life at famously demanding, fast-paced Amazon—Cooper said he wasn’t taking a swipe at his new employer.”There are far worse places” to land, Cooper said. “And few better.”Amazon says about 175 veterans are currently pursuing apprenticeships at Amazon offices around the country.

England out to cap ODI transformation in World Cup final

first_img Cricket 08 Jul 2019 Kiwis hold no World Cup mystery for us, say India {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} Related News Related News Cricket 10 Jul 2019 New Zealand stun India to reach final despite Jadeja heroicscenter_img Cricket 10 Jul 2019 Morgan’s England ‘a different animal’, says Plunkett They have since reinvented themselves as a ruthless one-day juggernaut, routinely racking up 300-plus scores with a fearless brand of cricket to reclaim the top ODI ranking last year after a five-year gap.”It’s been a process for the last four years,” Morgan said after his team ended Australia’s title defence at Edgbaston.”In 2015 we were way off the mark. We struggled against the top teams, and the teams that sat below that, so there was quite a drastic change in the way we played and the way we looked at playing our 50-over cricket.”They now parade an intimidatingly deep lineup with Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, comfortably the most destructive opening pair in contemporary cricket, leading the charge upfront.Their 124-run stand in Thursday’s semi-final against Australia was their fourth successive century partnership in the tournament.Morgan described Joe Root as the ‘glue’ in the lineup which includes a bevy of swashbuckling match-winners such as Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes.They have had a potent pace attack but Barbados-born Jofra Archer’s spectacular rise has added an extra dollop of hostility.One indication of the significance of the moment is that the final will be shown live on free-to-air television, a first since England’s victorious 2005 Ashes series.”Very cool, particularly given the 2005 Ashes for me was sort of the day cricket became cool,” Morgan said.”Throughout the whole summer, the game was on the front and back page of every newspaper going around, everyone was talking about and it that is really good for the game and it’s the game I love so it’s great news that it’s on free-to-air.”MORGAN WARY OF ‘DIFFICULT’ NZ Morgan, however, will not take anything for granted, especially against Kane Williamson’s team who upstaged India in the first semi-final in Manchester.Matt Henry and Trent Boult blew away India’s vaunted top order in a low-scoring thriller and with Lockie Ferguson in the ranks, they could be quite a handful for any batting lineup.”I think New Zealand throughout the whole tournament has been probably the hardest side to beat and the best side in the group stages,” Morgan said.”I think their performance in the semi-final was probably their best. They will be a difficult side to beat on Sunday.”The 2015 finalists began well before three back-to-back defeats nearly scuttled their campaign in the group stage.Against India, Williamson and his men showed how to defend a low total against a strong lineup, complementing their accurate bowlers with trademark sharp fielding.The only grey area is their batting, which relies too heavily on Williamson, comfortably their leading run scorer with a tournament-high 91-plus average.Ross Taylor topscored for the team against India but opener Martin Guptill has been woefully out of form since his 73 not out in their opener against Sri Lanka.Known for punching above their weight in the World Cup, New Zealand have the chance to go one better than their seven-wicket defeat to Australia four years ago. “I’m sure people back home are pretty excited and, you know, another great opportunity to play in a World Cup final,” Williamson said, promising to “play our best cricket” on Sunday. (Reporting by Amlan Chakraborty in London; editing by Toby Davis) LONDON (Reuters) – Eoin Morgan’s England can cap a stunning white-ball transformation in Sunday’s Cricket World Cup final but awaiting them at Lord’s will be a New Zealand side chasing their own slice of history. Twenty three years after Arjuna Ranatunga’s rag-tag Sri Lankan side clinched the title in Lahore, Lord’s will anoint new 50-over world champions after Australia and India, who shared the last five titles between them, wilted in the semi-finals.Of the two protagonists who will square off at the ‘home of cricket’, the hosts have more at stake.Morgan’s men are agonisingly close to completing a remarkable turnaround since being dumped out of the 2015 edition following a defeat to Bangladesh, a setback that changed an otherwise Ashes-obsessed England’s approach to one-day cricket.last_img read more
