How to find work in Jamaica at Call Centers - Xerox Job Fair for 2500 Amazon Agents on September 24th 2016

“Our open house events are a great opportunity to visit a Xerox site and find out more about our organisation and the various job opportunities. Candidates will have the opportunity to interact with the operations team in order to learn more about the culture, scope of work, and expectations of the job roles.”

Vice-president and country leader for Xerox in Jamaica, Leroy Reid, commenting on the Open House Hiring by Xerox Jamaica

Jamaican high school leavers and Call Center workers at Xerox, Advantage Call Center and yes Startek, I’ve got Call Center news that's more interesting than this remote for Women. Well maybe not, as I’d like to have this remote!

I’d mentioned that Xerox Jamaica was recruiting for Amazon as a ramp up for the Christmas 2016 period as explained in my blog article entitled “How to find work in Jamaica at Call Centers - 1500 Amazon Call Center Agents for Xerox Jamaica for Christmas Holidays”. 

I know this as I'd gotten my break into the Call Center world back in 2011 at Xerox, when the Amazon Kindle Fire had been launched as I’d reported in my Geezam blog article entitled “Amazon lights a Kindle Fire as a Gladiator worthy of the Apple iPad”. 

Back then I lived in a little hut, not much different from the one below; I learned a lot and that knowledge guides me to this day!
