AbbVie Veterans

We support our military veterans and those who serve in the Guard and Reserves, both in and out of the office.

Continue to make a remarkable impact

Veterans bring highly valued skills to our workplace. We’re actively looking to add more veterans to our ranks.

AbbVie recognizes veterans possess essential skills that seamlessly translate to the organization, such as leadership, responsibility, teamwork, integrity, selfless service, dedication, agility and problem solving.

SkillBridge program

We participate in the Department of Defense SkillBridge training program. SkillBridge allows eligible active duty service members to gain valuable work experience by participating in a job shadow within our business.

With SkillBridge, I was able to meet my military requirements while I was working at AbbVie — simultaneously serving our country and patients around the world.
