Advice to Management
Thank you for your hard work and dedication. Keep doing what you are doing!
I applied in-person. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
It was very pleasant. There was the hiring manager and some other employees to get an understanding whether this is the best candidate. Some questions were easy and some made you think about it.
We hope everyone had safe and happy holiday celebrations! Here's a little greeting from the St. Jude faculty and staff.
Last week we held our first St. Jude Global Alliance meeting here in Memphis, Tennessee. We welcomed 167 participants from 52 different countries to this inaugural meeting. Dr. Downing, CEO, spoke about St. Jude's plan (the first of its kind) to influence the care of over 30% of the world's children suffering with cancer over the next decade. Essentially, the goal is to influence care through education of the global clinical workforce treating cancer, strengthening health systems caring for children with cancer, and advancing knowledge through cutting-edge research. We are excited about this initiative and its implications for children worldwide.
