Can I apply to multiple positions?
The positions provided on this portal only represent the types of positions that will be available; they are not the actual positions that are available for placement. You may apply to more than one position however, we ask that you apply only to positions that best represent your interests and qualifications. All eligible applicants will be considered for opportunities within the program based on qualifications, interests and geographic location. We encourage you to submit a cover letter to provide recruiters with a better understanding of your goals and experience.
If I apply, when will I know if I am selected?
Given the highly competitive nature of the program, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be placed. We conduct interviews on a rolling basis; students are contacted if they are selected by managers for an interview. Interviews typically occur between February and mid-April. Applicants who are not selected for a position will be notified via email by mid-May. Communications are delivered to the email address you provide when you register. An Applicant Tracking System is utilized to issue these emails so, please be sure to check your inbox or spam folder frequently.
Where are the assignments located?
Pfizer has locations throughout the U.S.; the online application process will ask you to identify which location(s) are feasible for you.
If I participated in the program in the past, can I apply again for this summer?
Students can participate in the Summer Student Worker Program for a maximum of two summers. Students who have applied previously would need to re- apply in order to be considered for the 2020 SWP.
