Real voices. Real CRAs.

 It’s no secret Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) have many options when deciding where to work. So we asked Covance CRAs:    

Why did you choose to work and stay with Covance? 

We heard many interesting stories about gaining experience on the job, earning promotions, mentoring and mapping out an ideal work/life balance. Take a peek at what our CRAs told us in our CRA talent community site.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covance.

    Interview

    Uses STAR method. Mostly behavioral questions. The interview was excessively long (9am-3pm), which involved meeting just about every member in the department/lab. Consisted of both 1:1 and group interviews, which weren't overly formal.

    Interview Questions
