Intern - Human Resources People Analytics

As a Gilead intern you will contribute to high-impact meaningful projects that will not only further advance our company's mission but will allow you to gain real world experience at one of the most innovative organizations in the world. You will also have opportunities to participate in special events including professional development and leadership presentations, social/network building activities, and local community volunteer programs.

Additional Information about the Role:

Gilead's People Analytics team supports more than 16,000 employees and an even bigger mission: helping the organization make better people-decisions so we can more effectively pursue innovative treatments for unmet medical needs. As a member of the team, you'll have the opportunity to learn from technologists, consultants, psychometricians, and product developers on a daily basis. Our diverse group also gets to work with employees across all levels of the organization and around the world. We are stewards of the data tasked with efficiently finding answers to business-relevant questions (e.g., "What's driving our turnover trends?", "How can we best listen to the input of employees?", "Why are certain hiring channels more effective than others?", etc.). The distinctive depth, breadth, and cleanliness of our people database allows us to explore unique and cutting-edge analyses.

Senior leaders, Human Resources Business Partners (HRBPs), and other stakeholders often have questions that can be informed by analyzing our people data. This role engages with those stakeholders to understand needs, generate insights, and drive high-impact people decisions. Specifically, this role involves discerning business needs, pulling relevant information from our systems or other sources, checking the accuracy of the data, running appropriate analyses, drawing conclusions based on the results, distilling insights into a deliverable, and communicating your findings to stakeholders.

Key Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Discerning business needs that could be informed by analysing people-related data
    • You'll have the opportunity to select from a diverse array of projects ranging from hiring data to our listening strategy to turnover, from comment analysis to survival analysis to machine learning and more. There's a panoply of potential projects and flexibility based on the talents and interests of the intern
    • Examples of previous business needs:
      • Understanding why people join Gilead: project involved internal and external data sources, quantitative analyses, demographic segmentation, and comment coding to produce a summary of our attractors, repellents, and recommended adjustments
      • Redesigning how we collect feedback from new hires and exiting employees: project involved interviews, analysis of multiple versions of archival data, consideration of external innovations, and crafting of a strategy with an execution plan
      • Researching the effectiveness of our rewards and talent designation practices: project involved pulling together longitudinal data from across rewards and talent programs to track the within- and between-person impact of various levers on different demographics, which led to the discovery of differential reward sensitivity by segment
      • Detecting turnover trends at scale: projected involved building a Python tool to automate the regular monitoring of turnover across demographics and use statistical analysis to identify trends that humans (e.g., leaders) would find attention-worthy
      • Conducting accurate statistical analyses to discover insights
        • Analyses may range from data quality checks and descriptive statistics to machine learning models, depending on the project and aptitude of the intern
        • Multiple data sources, methods, and slices will be used to identify the key features of the reality the data are reflecting
        • Distilling insights into impactful deliverables
          • Packaging insights and code into understandable products is essential to driving impact, so you'll learn design principles and story-telling techniques
            • Showcase your work with a final poster board presentation near the conclusion of your internship
              • We'll coach you on presentation techniques, influencing skills, and how to navigate conversations that don't go as smoothly as planned
                Required Qualifications:
                • Must be at least 18 years old

                  • Must be enrolled full-time in the Fall Semester at an accredited university/college after the completion of the internship
                  • Must be able to complete a 10-12 consecutive week internship between May and August
                  • Must be able to relocate if necessary and work at the designated site for the duration of the internship
                  • Must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and first booster shot
                    Preferred Qualifications:
                    • Analytical mindset (e.g., fluency in metrics and statistics, visualization, survey methodology, data management, etc.)
                    • Hunger to contribute; opportunities here abound and we need someone who will make the most of that
                    • Proficiency with MS Office Suite
                    • Ability to identify issues and seek solutions
                    • Ability to work both independently and collaboratively
                    • Concise communication style
