Amazon has delayed the start dates for some university graduates who had been set to the join the company in May, blaming the "macroeconomic environment" and telling students they would now not be able to begin until the end of 2023.

Lab126, where the technology behind the Alexa voice assistant is developed, has been a particular focus of Amazon's recent round of cuts, according to people familiar with the company's plans.

"It's not surprising," said a student who had been due to start working at Amazon's campus in Sunnyvale, Calif.. "It's a bummer, but life happens."

Amazon is delaying the start dates for some college hires by up to six months, a spokesman said.
