Video Transcript:
Hi, I'm Pam. In the five years I've been here I been involved with projects that have brought drugs from the discovery phase to being dosed in human volunteers and that's something special to me about working at AstraZeneca. I'm learning how to make drugs. Which is something that might not sound very specific but its something I didn't do when I first started. What I've learned here is how to apply what I've learned in school to solving real world problems. When I'm not working in the lab, I'm interacting with biologists and bio-chemists and pharmacologists trying to figure out what we need to do to make drugs better. You're always learning something you didn't know before just by walking through the hallway. My career has developed quite rapidly. I got my masters degree working part time supported by the company. If you want to work for a company that supports its employees; you want to work at a place where you can consider all of your coworkers your close friends and you want to do science that you think makes a difference in the world, then AstraZeneca's the right company for you.
