How to Get Hired
We asked Abbott for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We deeply care about teamwork, collaboration, driving for results and adaptability as “fit factors.” As a global company, driving an inclusive culture and being a role model for ethical standards are also very important. Last but not least, demonstrating our core company values of caring about creating happier and healthier lives around the world is important.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
They should demonstrate a track record of success, quality orientation, utmost ethical standards and passion for improving lives around the world. For leadership roles, we would seek to understand how they grew businesses, how they built teams and organizations and how they fostered a diverse work environment.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Science and Engineering is key to continued innovation in markets around the world. That said, we also focus on professionals in marketing, sales, research and development, IT, finance and regulatory.
