Jobs at S&N
« on: June 29, 2012, 04:16:17 PM »
I was checking out the Smith&Nephew website today and looked at "careers".  These dudes are hiring and they are doing lots of hiring.  You don't have to be an ortho surgeon, either.  Would it be sort of cool to be a machinist making prosthetics?  Maybe an engineer doing R&D, or Sales?  I think there a few good candidates right here on the forum for Sales or better yet R&D.  You could be a GIS tech looking at demographics, sales, and other such issues.  Chuck's favorite, a QA/QC specialist working on regulatory issues with the FDA. ;)    You could even be a Master Black Belt in the business improvement world of Kaizen and Six Sigma, which probabaly has nothing to do with medical parts manufacturing.  Then there's the packager, I think that would be a pretty cool job for awhile.  You would be the last person responsible for cleaning and prepping a prosthetic before it get's opened up on the operating table.   

I know some of you are thinking, why the heck would you want to be any closer to a BHR than you already are?  It is a little odd how into this stuff we've gotten.  I'll stick with my day job, but it is kind of fun to daytime dream about working in the HR world.

Maybe I can get a job as a Test Pilot.  I'm giving these babies a good workout!

lol....I would design a motorised one which allows you to run faster than Bolt. Although that's no good for me as I would end up running round in circles!

I'd make sure the WORK  vs  FUN  Hip labelling would be correct.  Boomer's right, the FUN Hip should NEVER be used for work ;)
