At Bristol-Myers Squibb, we are working together for patients. We're creating innovative medicines for patients fighting serious diseases. We're also nurturing our own diverse team with inspiring work and challenging career options. No matter the role, each one of us makes a contribution. Together, we make the difference.
To help make the transition from the military back to civilian life, we formed a dedicated Veterans Community Network (VCN). In the VCN, the support of fellow service members fosters engagement and creates a sense of community.
We work hard to provide a rewarding work environment for veterans so they can build meaningful careers, contribute their talents, and create a new life for themselves and their families. COME JOIN OUR MISSION AT BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB.

Stay busy, be open, and keep friends and family close. I am an advocate for continuing education and experience. As a member of the U.S. Military, I find fulfillment in a good day's work, and in fact, look forward to it. For myself, I discovered the best process to transition was to stay busy by enrolling in school, to further my education and future career prospects, while also working during school. In this, my mind and body stayed busy, and gave me the ability to reintegrate with the civilian force through immersion.
I was in the Air Force for six years. The most important decision I made during my transition was going through the Transition Assistance Program (TAP). They gave me a book called “From Air Force Blue to Corporate Gray�?. The TAP program help me navigate military life to civilian life. In my current position at BMS, I perform data quality checks to ensure the data is as accurate as possible within the system. I also create reports and dashboards using large datasets.
