Create a custom resume for each job you apply to
- Tailor your resume to share the specific skills, experiences and examples that demonstrate why you are a perfect match for each job you apply to.
- Articulate your achievements clearly, focusing on the results and your impact, instead of responsibilities.
- Start in reverse chronological order and use bullet points.
- Two pages is often the perfect length.
- Explain gaps in your work history; if you were traveling, volunteering or doing something else, please mention it.
- Depending on the role you apply for, an additional resume in a second language can be beneficial.
Optimize your personal brand
- Write a brief summary of the skills and experience that qualify you for the role, highlighting ways you will add value to the organization.
- Pay close attention to detail. Your resume should be free of spelling and grammar errors and typos. Consider asking someone to proofread and/or use a tool like Grammarly.
- Speak in terms that are general across industries, instead of using acronyms or slang. A quick description of which type of industry your former employers were in, and with which products you worked (if applicable), can be very helpful for those reviewing your resume.
- Ensure you have a professional email address, and make sure your contact details are included and correct.
Be specific and include data
- Research Baxter and refer to Baxter in your application, including why you want to work at Baxter in the role you applied to. Be aware of our industry, products and environment.
- Look for keywords in the job posting and include those keywords in your resume, when relevant.
Preparing for the interview
- Review the job description, research our company and learn about our businesses.
- Learn about your interviewers and prepare questions for them. You may want to review their LinkedIn profiles.
- Be prepared to confidently answer the "Why" questions. Why this specific role? Why Baxter? And why are you a perfect match for this position?
- Think of good examples to demonstrate your skills and reflect your achievements. The STAR principle is a useful method for structuring your examples (Situation – Tasks – Action – Result).
- For virtual interviews, test the technology prior to the interview (microphone, camera, background, etc.).
during the interview
- Be specific and on point when answering questions — if you are not sure, you can ask for clarification.
- Be authentic and introspective. We are interested in getting to know the real you.
- We encourage you to ask questions. An interview should be a two-way process. Be curious.
- Don’t be afraid to share examples of when things didn’t go well. Just be sure to include what you have learned from it and what you would do differently today.
- Be mindful of body language and eye contact.
- Don’t forget, no one knows you better than yourself, so don’t be nervous and enjoy the meeting.
After the interview
- Reflect upon which topics had been discussed, what questions you were asked, and how you felt during the interview. Make a pros and cons list to help structure your thoughts and impressions.
- Assess what you have learned about the company and position.
- Share your feedback and insights with your TA contact soon after the interview so they can align with the hiring manager and coordinate next steps. You can also use this as an opportunity to ask unanswered questions and say thank you.
- Update TA about any changes regarding your contact information or availability.
Baxter has discovered incidents of employment scams, where fraudulent parties pose as Baxter employees, recruiters, or other agents, and engage with online job seekers in an attempt to steal personal and/or financial information. These unauthorized parties may use Baxter’s name and logo to post jobs, engage with job seekers via instant message, LinkedIn, or chat rooms, or even extend offers via text message.
At Baxter, we do not ask for personal financial information during telephone, in-person, or video interviews, nor do we make offers of employment without undergoing a thorough recruiting process. We also will not request a fee to be considered for a job.
Please read this notice in its entirety to learn how you can protect yourself against being a victim of recruitment fraud.
There are several warning signs that might suggest you are being engaged as part of an online job-hunting scam. They may include:
- You receive an email from an individual claiming to be a Baxter recruiter, but the sender does not have an authorized baxter.com email address.
- Email messages use generic salutations such as sir/madam, rather than your name, or contain multiple typos and grammatical errors.
- The sender asks you to share personal information (home address, date of birth, social security/identification number and bank account numbers) via email, text or chat conversation.
- The sender requests a placement or processing fee.
- You are offered a job at Baxter after only a text or chat conversation.
You can take several precautionary measures to protect yourself from recruitment fraud, including:
- Verify the sender’s email address and shared URLs. Cyber criminals will often use modified email addresses or URLs or email addresses from free email services. For example, the email may come from baxter-inc.com, baxter-healthcare.com, [email protected], rather than Baxter’s authorized email extension—baxter.com—or Baxter’s career site—jobs.baxter.com. Research the company’s email address extension and URL using a search engine to verify its legitimacy.
- Do not send money or provide credit card information to be considered for a job. Legitimate employers, like Baxter, do not ask for money to have your application processed or to conduct a background check.
- Do not share personal or financial data in response to an email request. Do not share personal information via email, fax, or phone call with anyone purporting to be working for Baxter, because we will never ask for such information by such means. Personal or financial data may include bank account number, credit card number with security code, account username and password, date of birth, driver’s license number and full social security/national identification number. If required, this information is only requested at the end of a thorough hiring process after a formal offer of employment has been made or an employment contract has been signed. At that point, this type of sensitive information can often be provided through a secure online system.
- Be cautious of unsolicited offers of employment. If you are offered a role with Baxter via email, a social media site such as LinkedIn, or text message, ask to speak to someone on the phone and capture their name, the company or agency they represent, their office location and contact details. If you are still suspicious of the offer, complete this brief form to notify us of the suspected fraud and someone from our recruitment team will be in touch.
If you suspect you are the victim of an online job-hunting scam by someone posing as a Baxter recruiter, employee, or other agent, complete this form to notify us of the suspected fraud. A Baxter representative will be in touch after assessing the legitimacy of the reported incident.
