How to Get Hired
We asked AbbVie 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 assess candidates based on their qualifications for the role and how well they would fit with our Ways We Work and Leadership Attributes. Our Ways We Work and Leadership Attributes clearly articulate the narrative of our culture and the behaviors expected of every employee. AbbVie is a place where how you work with your colleagues is just as important as the results you achieve. Interviewers are assigned questions aligned with our Ways We Work to ensure that candidates are fully assessed against the competencies that are foundational to our culture and leadership. We seek employees who will live and embody the leadership attributes we’ve defined as an expectation for every employee of the company. Employees must thrive and build our vibrant environment of learning and collaboration, seizing possibilities and taking smart risks to make a tangible impact in the lives of the patients we serve.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
From our newest employees to our top executives, we seek employees who embody the Ways We Work and leadership attributes. In addition, we seek prospective employees who can articulate and demonstrate their belief that science makes a difference in the lives of patients, and that they possess the relentless determination and personal dedication to help us make this a reality across roles. Overall, candidates that are bold, curious and passionate are the ones that get our attention.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In addition to having to demonstrate our unique Ways We Work and leadership attributes, which are at the heart of our culture, we are focused on supporting the growth of our oncology and neurology pipelines and continuing to sustain our market position in immunology and specialty care. This requires candidates with a combination of technical expertise and leadership skills who are ready to help us accelerate AbbVie's growth.
