Interview Insider: How to Get Hired at L'Oreal



The world's largest beauty company wants you to spend your whole career there.
L'Oreal became the world's largest beauty company by slowly building — and acquiring — its 32 global brands, which include LancômeEssieClarisonic, and Maybelline. Today, the strategy for growth is focused on people. Recruiters are constantly searching for new talent, according to Sumita Banerjee, senior vice president of talent acquisition for L'Oreal Americas. And as soon as an employee joins the company, L'Oreal wants to keep them there.
"We see ourselves as incubators of talent and ideas," Banerjee says. "I recently read that U.S. millennials will have more than 15 jobs in their lifetime. You can have 15-plus jobs within the L'Oreal family and spend your entire career here. Our employees have the opportunity to shape their own career and change positions via our brands or divisions across the company and around the world. We want your career to be an adventure."
