We’re really pleased you’re interested in a career with us! We need the best and brightest talent to help us make the world healthier and happier—and you might be just what we’re looking for.
But OK, let’s admit it … applying for jobs can be tedious, can’t it? You spend hours on your application, only to watch it disappear into a black hole—and then it’s a waiting game. You rarely get any clarity on what to expect, let alone any updates on the status of your application. Sometimes you don’t hear anything at all.
We’ve all been there.
It’s time-consuming and frustrating, and—let’s face it—there are probably a hundred other things you’d rather be doing with your time.
But here at Johnson & Johnson, we want to change that …
We don’t want you to feel frustrated or unhappy when you apply for a job with Johnson & Johnson. We get excited when someone chooses to pursue a career with us, and we feel passionate that your hiring experience should reflect that positivity. And even though we receive nearly a million applications a year, we think it’s really important that you’re able to make our hiring process work for you as an individual.
Most importantly, we want to make sure we’re setting you up for success—empowering you to show us you at your very best.
Over the past few months, we asked thousands of candidates (just like you) what they want from a hiring process and what frustrations they currently have. A lot of it was pretty much what we’d expected: You want a more engaging and transparent process that doesn’t leave you feeling so helpless.
Our new candidate experience platform, Shine, is the result of that feedback. It’s designed to give you back control of your job search and make the whole experience more engaging.
You asked for transparency, regular status updates, helpful content and real-time support—so that’s what you’ve got.
You can use Shine to get updates on the progress of your application, find out what to expect next, hear from our recent hires about their experiences, and browse articles and videos that are relevant to where you are in the hiring process, providing you with motivation and practical help every step of the way. No more searching through countless web pages to find the info you need; we’ve put it all in one place for you.
And if you feel like you need to talk to someone, that’s available, too. You can reach out to us through our Twitter handle, @JNJShine. There’s always a member of the Talent Acquisition team available to give you recruitment advice and answer your questions.
Of course, as with any new venture, we know it won’t be perfect from the start. So, if you’ve gone through our new hiring experience and have feedback, please reach out to me via Twitter (@sjoerdgehring) or LinkedIn. We’ll use the information you provide to make improvements.
If you’ve already applied for a position with us, you can log in to Shine with your Careers website credentials to take advantage of our new hiring experience.
On behalf of the entire Talent Acquisition team, thanks for your interest in Johnson & Johnson and good luck in your job search!
VP, Talent Acquisition
