  • Student Questions


  • How can I find out when Johnson & Johnson will be at my university?

    Check with the campus career services office at your university to see if and when Johnson & Johnson companies will be visiting your school. As a student, the best way to find a job within our companies is to meet us at a campus event.

    In general, we recruit graduating students for full-time jobs between August and November each year. Internship and co-op candidates are recruited between December and January.

  • What kinds of assignments are given to internship and co-op employees?

    Assignment in these roles can vary across our companies and even among departments within the same company. Typically, internship or co-op assignments may include collecting critical data, analyzing information or research, completing projects, or creating new projects.

    Co-op students will often have an opportunity to take a project from creation through implementation. Interns, because of the short-term nature of their assignments, may work on a more limited part of a full project. We’ll also provide a number of programmed activities that offer a broader perspective on our leadership principles, values, and longer-term business challenges.

    We see successful internship and co-op employees as a valuable resource in our search for future leaders across our companies.

    Individual university policy will determine if students get course credit for an internship or co-op assignment within our companies.

    Some schools have formal co-operative education programs in which students submit reports at the end of an assignment in order to qualify for credit. Other schools with less formal programs may review student requests for course credit on an individual basis.

    Please check with your campus career services office or your academic advisor to determine your options.
