FAQs

What's the recruitment process? And how long does the entire process take?

Upon receiving your application, our recruiters will review your profile according to the position that you applied for, as well as any other relevant vacancies that we think might interest you. If you are considered as a suitable candidate for any position, we will contact you to arrange a telephone / video / in-person interview. In general, the recruitment process would usually include 1 to 3 rounds of interview with HR and relevant team members in 4 to 6 weeks.
If the position is not a suitable match, we appreciate your interest in Pfizer regardless and would encourage you to apply for any other opportunities. Please keep your profile up to date as we are always looking for new talents!

Does Pfizer prefer a degree in life science?

It depends on the job nature and requirements of the position that you apply for. If specific academic background (science / business related) is preferred, it will be clearly stated in the job description.

What qualities in particular are Pfizer looking for on prospective candidates?

Each role has a unique set of technical requirements but in general, we look for candidates who share the same core values with us – curious to learn, courageous to take on challenges, enjoy teamwork, take initiative to excel and most crucially possess passion and an innovative mindset to bring breakthroughs that change our patients' lives.

If I am an overseas candidate, will my chance of success be affected?

We value talents around the world. With Pfizer's strong digital capabilities, our assessment process will not be hindered by geographic boundaries.
