Methodology

Over multiple hires and thousands of interviews, we’ve developed a program that has been shown to be effective in preparing you for interviews and increasing your chances of getting a job at Amazon. The content we’ve created gives you a huge advantage over other interviewees, but the real power comes from coaching. You are paired with a trained coach who has a background working directly with Amazon, and who can tailor the program to you and maximize your chances of success.

The bulk of the program is structured around helping you create, clarify and practice articulating your past experiences from the lens of the Amazon Leadership Principles. From countless conversations with hiring managers and senior executives at Amazon, the common denominator between those who succeed in the interviews and land a job at Amazon (apart from some outliers) is how much time they put into preparing for the unique style of interviews, not just their education and pedigree.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers
Carrus.io is a matching platform that connects people with the best coaches. Our platform allows anyone to look for and hire qualified coaches to help with all parts of their career. Coaches can provide leadership training, career-coaching and advice on building the skills in today’s rapidly changing world. 

Here’s a quick guide to getting started. 

1. Get matched.

To get matched, start by filling out basic information about your industry, background. You can also include details about your specific situation, and what stage of the interview process you are in.  We will match you with a coach within 48 hours.

2. Talk to coaches for free.

When you are matched with a coach,  you can directly message them to start a conversation and book a free consultation call in their calendar. During this call you can briefly discuss your situation, and decide whether you’d like to work together.

3. Select a coach.

Once you’ve selected your coach, you can either pay for coaching on an hourly basis or get a monthly subscription at a slightly discounted rate. All coaching is done online via our video platform. 

No matter how much coaching you get, or how much you prepare, nothing is guaranteed. Like any job interview, there are lots of factors outside of your control – everything from the business situation to the interviewer’s mood. Working 1-1 with our coaches can help increase your chances of landing the job, and give you an advantage that you wouldn’t have otherwise. But we can’t control the outcome, of course.

One of the main benefits of using our coaching service is to get mock interview preparation. Most candidates who succeed in getting offers on average practice 5-10 hours in a mock interview setting. Typically, an internal recruiter will talk to you for a few minutes but won’t have the bandwidth to help you with several hours of coaching.
