Amazon announced this week plans to add more than 70,000 full-time seasonal jobs, including 1,000 at its Lebanon fulfillment center.

Of those 70,000 jobs, the online retail giant plans to add 7,000 jobs at its Murfreesboro fulfillment center.

According to a statement from Goodwill Career Solutions, which will help fill those positions, some of these jobs will turn into permanent positions.

Goodwill Career Solutions will hold at least six job fairs this month for Staff Management, SMX, the staffing agency working with Amazon to fill the positions.

The first job fair for positions at Amazon’s Lebanon location will be held Monday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Career Solutions, located at 565 S. Jefferson Ave. in Cookeville. Fairs will also be held Oct. 11, 18 and 25 from 10 a.m. to noon at Career Solutions in Nashville, located at 2731 Lebanon Pike.

Job fairs for positions at Amazon’s Murfreesboro location will be held Oct. 15 and 29 from 9 a.m. to noon at Career Solutions in Murfreesboro, located at 710 Memorial Blvd., Ste. 210.

A company representative will be on site during the fairs and interviews will be possible, so applicants should dress appropriately. Candidates should bring resumes, photo identification and Social Security cards or birth certificates.
