Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – Why Work For Us?

"LLS is doing more than any cancer nonprofit to advance cutting-edge research and cures."
Louis J. DeGennaro, Ph.D., LLS President and CEO

LLS research investment has played a critical role in advancing therapies for blood cancer patients, including targeted and immunotherapies.

As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the LLS research agenda is focused on finding cures. LLS drives research in areas of unmet medical need and helps to bridge the gap between academic discovery and drug development.

We fund research grants to support every discipline in the blood cancers, and we partner directly with biotechnology companies to accelerate therapies.

    Outreach Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Cincinnati, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Easy phone interview followed by an in person interview. More of a conversation than an actual interview. Interview was the person I would have reported to...she was very personable and honest about position. The only reason I declined the position was the schedule. I was hoping for a more flexible part time schedule and this was a Monday-Friday requirement. It would be a great company to work for with so much passion for their mission.
