COLORADO SPRINGS — Amazon announced it is planning to hire 1,000 people in Colorado as part of its initiative to hire an additional 75,000 jobs, according to a release.

The company said it has fulfilled its pledge to hire 100,000 people in various job types nationwide. Of these 100,000 positions, Amazon said they hired 3,600 Coloradans.

Despite the new hiring, Amazon said they are continuing to see high demand and are seeking more hires to meet those needs.

"We know many people have been economically impacted as jobs in areas like hospitality, restaurants, and travel are lost or furloughed as part of this crisis, and we welcome anyone out of work to join us at Amazon until their past employer can bring them back," the company said in a release.
