The Four Most In-Demand Skills at Johnson & Johnson Today


t Johnson & Johnson, we’re harnessing the power of science and technology to make a positive impact in the world. Whether that means leveraging 3-D printing to “bioprint” human tissue, developing products that are cybersecurity-ready for the Internet of Things (IoT) or leading the fight against HIV and AIDS, we’re actively recruiting and training professionals with the passion, commitment and skills that will enable us to continue to live up to Our Credo—“doing well by doing good.”

But which skills are the most in demand—and the most likely to get you hired—at Johnson & Johnson today? The answers may surprise you.

In today’s digital-first world, technology is key, so tech skills are obviously on the list. But there are soft skills, too, like collaboration and communication, that are not only essential to our success going forward, but also generally underrepresented on the resumes we see. Read on to discover the four hottest skills at Johnson & Johnson today.

Data Analysis

We’re committed to creating better health outcomes for patients around the world. That’s why we formed Verb Surgical, Inc., an independent surgical solutions company, in collaboration with Verily Life Sciences LLC (formerly Google Life Sciences). Our goal is to develop digital surgery platforms and shape the future of app-enabled healthcare. These and other sophisticated, cutting-edge technologies require us to collect, organize and analyze massive amounts of data—and we need people with the right skills to make that happen.

Data analysis is hugely important today, and it will only become more critical in the future. Hundreds of roles in data science, analytics and data capabilities, and data engineering are available at our locations around the globe.

At Johnson & Johnson, we know that collaboration is at the heart of innovation and progress. It’s what transforms the scientific discoveries of today into the groundbreaking healthcare products of tomorrow. That’s why we’ve invested so heavily in the creation of physical spaces—such as our Global Innovation Centers and Center for Device Innovation—where scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs and others can all come together to exchange ideas and find the resources and support they need to be successful.

We believe there’s nothing that can’t be solved when committed individuals share their resources, ideas and passion. Those who are flexible, eager to learn and grow, and capable of working across multiple platforms and teams will feel right at home at Johnson & Johnson.

The need for a collaborative approach is required in roles as diverse as Product Specialists, Clinical Research Associates, Field Sales Managers and hundreds more.

To be successful, teams need to not only work collaboratively, but also communicate effectively. Sounds simple, right? In fact, it’s anything but.

A role might require you to communicate with executives and other senior stakeholders, as well as team members in different locations (or even different continents) and across a variety of business functions. Each audience has different priorities and expectations for what and how you communicate. Keeping all that straight isn’t easy, and doing it well takes skill and practice. When you factor in nonverbal communication skills like listening actively and demonstrating empathy, it’s clear that communicating effectively is anything but easy.

That’s why we’re constantly on the lookout for professionals with polished communication skills. It’s an ability that touches literally every facet of what we do—from customer service to supply chain analysis, oncology, immunology and digital marketing—communication is key.

Strategic Thinking

We’ve got some of the smartest minds in the world hard at work developing products and solutions that improve the daily lives of people around the globe. In fact, we are the world’s most broadly based global healthcare business, with more than 125,000 employees in 60 countries. But that didn’t happen by chance.

The products we develop align with a broader strategy—one that accounts for patients’ needs, product delivery and everything in between. That means we need professionals who have the vision required to see the bigger picture and the strategic skills to bring new initiatives to life. From guiding market research to defining brand elements and tone, savvy strategists will find themselves highly in demand at Johnson & Johnson. If you’re a strategic thinker, you can use your gifts to support the success of exciting projects in roles ranging from Business Development Specialist to Medical Science Liaison.
