What is

Career Choice?


The Amazon Career Choice program is uniquely designed to upskill employees seeking to advance within Amazon or pursue a future outside of it. Through the Career Choice tech programs, Kenzie Academy will equip you with essential tools and help you develop the skills to land a job in a tech position. The curriculum for these part-time, online, and 6-month programs is developed by industry experts and hiring partners, which ensures you’re job-ready upon completing the program.

Program Cost and Tuition Assistance

Amazon covers 100% of tuition for full-time employees — as long as you have $5,250 available in Career Choice tuition assistance. So, you’ll owe $0 in out-of-pocket tuition expenses. Part-time employees receive $2,625 in your annual budget to use toward a Kenzie Academy Career Choice program. Learn more about how to apply, get tuition assistance, and apply for a voucher.

Community of Support

You can be assured that Kenzie Academy’s Academic, Learner Services, and Career Services Teams will be with you every step of the way. Our teams support your entire journey, from enrollment and getting a job to growing personally and professionally. You can count on Kenzie’s course facilitators, mentors, Learner Success Advisors, Career Advisors, and other staff members to help you maximize your education and achieve your goals — all while championing your success.

Leadership and Engagement Events

Kenzie alums, industry professionals, and staff members also host thought leadership events, AMAs (Ask Me Anything), and Q&As. These are opportunities to hear from tech leaders and Kenzie alum who were once in your position. They’ll share how they got to where they are today, give advice, answer questions, and provide insight on how to elevate your career.

About Kenzie Academy

Kenzie Academy, an online coding and technical school, connects all who want to pursue an education and career in tech with the opportunities and support to do so. Kenzie’s tech programs, including the Amazon Career Choice programs, train learners to meet current industry demand and help learners with career and soft skills development. Unlike bootcamps, Kenzie’s programs are more in-depth, so learners can absorb concepts and practice — however, these programs are shorter than traditional degrees to put learners on the fast-track toward entering the workforce.
