Most people know St. Jude as a pediatric hospital, but what about the older pediatric patients? Adolescents and young adults (AYA) treated at St. Jude have unique needs that are different from the younger pediatric patients. They often crave more control and independence and require different types of support as they combat their illness. Currently, there are roles available in our Child Life Program that deal specifically with AYA. If you'd like to assist this unique population as they navigate what it means to be a teen and a St. Jude patient, check out our available jobs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in Dec 2017

    Interview

    Applied via St. Jude's career website. Took perhaps several weeks to hear back but proceeded smoothly from there. Typical phone screen followed by a full day plus on-site meeting with faculty and staff. Second on-site visit was 1.5 days. All handled very professionally. About 2-2.5 months from initial interview to accepted offer.
    Interview

    I was asked about management style, handling difficult situations, and vision.
