We asked Dermira, Inc. 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 look for talented, motivated employees who are energetic, positive, and who have a drive to make a difference for patients. The ideal Dermira employee has the desire to collaborate and work in teams, but can also think and work independently. We are seeking employees who are interested in actively participating in activities around the company beyond their day-to-day roles that allow them to interact with colleagues from different functions. We believe this is key to building trust and ultimately working well as a team. We welcome all prospective employees who are motivated by the opportunity to be a part of an organization making breakthrough advancements in science that will help patients and their families.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Prospective employees can start by reaching out to us regardless of whether or not we have a role posted that may fit their skill set. We have a number of employees who have previously worked in other disciplines who have taken on different roles at Dermira. As a growing organization, we are opening new positions frequently, so meeting and getting to know you in advance is advantageous. We also encourage prospective employees to leverage social networking channels to see who they may know at Dermira. We take great pride in our team, many of whom came to Dermira as employee referrals. We believe this to be a great way to build a strong team that works together well right from the start.
