How to Get Hired
We asked Novo Nordisk 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 seek new employees who align with our values and culture, specifically the passion and dedication towards customer service and patient care. We are also committed to attracting and hiring diverse candidates. Patients are our number one priority, so passion for what we do as a company is key.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Candidates who impress during a phone interview are then brought in front of a carefully selected team for further interviews. Our interview team typically includes the recruiter, hiring manager, subject matter experts, a member of Human Resources, and the second level manager for the position. Our goal is to have candidates meet a variety of future colleagues as well as get a feel for our unique organization's culture. The interviews are structured and behavioral, focused on the leadership and technical competencies for the position. Interview team members use interview guides that were designed for specific positions within the organization.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
That information is not available at this time.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We employ many creative approaches for attracting both active as well as passive candidates who may be open to new opportunities. Our overall goal is to build talent communities rather than just fill open positions. We do this by: relying on a combination of campaigns that include banner ads, direct emails, and pay-per click as well as direct postings to sites such as Indeed, Simply Hired, and KODA.
