At 18 years old, Senior Talent Acquisition Manager Carmen Vázquez knew she wanted to do something meaningful with her life. Growing up in a mountain town in Puerto Rico, graduating college was the privilege of few at the time. But, these humble beginnings ultimately propelled her to a long-term career where she helps others achieve their goals and explore opportunities for growth. “I am so grateful that I made it and that the years of experience in the temporary employment industry helped me reach my ultimate goal: to work and serve in a company that strives every day to provide a better quality of life for so many patients in Puerto Rico and around the world.” Explore careers.amgen.com to live out a purposeful career.
The way we work may change, but that doesn't mean we can't keep forwarding our mission. "The journey to attract talent to Amgen doesn’t stop just because we can’t meet in person," said Anette Gillian from #AmgenUK, who shared a photo of her home office where she continues to connect with candidates virtually. "Using video calling as often as possible helps you to stay connected to people and has been a really good tool for interviews. We continue to hold interviews, replacing the classic face-to-face interviews and assessment centres with video conferencing. It works really well and has ensured our work continues and is business as usual.” Explore careers.amgen.com to discover how you can make a difference to patients around the world.
40 years ago, Amgen was born. Although the world looks vastly different now than it did in 1980, our mission of serving patients has never wavered. Take a trip back in time to see what was happening when we entered the new world of biotechnology in April 1980: https://bit.ly/2RmOPTM. #LifeAtAmgen
After leaving her home state of Idaho to pursue a career in the life sciences, chemist Vanessa (Graham) Belozeroff was used to being one of the only women in the room. Since then, she’s set out to change that. As the global chair of our WE2 women’s organization, Vanessa helps us assess what we need to do to not only support diversity but also inclusiveness. “It’s not just having the people around your table — it’s how you listen, it’s how we all think and process through a global lens." We thank all of the women of Amgen who have helped shape us into the biotech leader we are today!
Join us tomorrow, Feb. 27, for a special Amgen Answers live stream with the Amgen Black Employee Network. We'll be sharing our views on workplace diversity and how we're fostering a culture of inclusion and belonging. See you there!

Sometimes, making a difference requires getting our hands dirty. Last week, members of our EHSS (Environmental Health, Safety & Sustainability) group sorted through 24 hours' worth of waste generated on our outdoor patios as part of a waste audit, which measures the impact of recycling and composting efforts across our Thousand Oaks campus. We're proud to do our part in promoting a cleaner, greener world.
Happy Valentine's Day from Amgen! Wishing everyone a day filled with love from family and friends.
