They’re not just good business practices. They make a difference and they’re the right things to do.

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?

    I applied online. I interviewed at Covance.


    Typical Interview Process. Amazing hiring managers. Typical screener phone calls before you advance to other rounds, then move on to the final interview. Great interviewers - a thorough understanding of the role and company.
