Hasbro’s core values to bring your best every day to “complete the mission.” I’m at a company where what I do brings smiles to children’s faces.

When looking for a civilian career, how did you research your options?

Honestly, I didn’t know what to look for or where to go.  I bounced from nursing to education to sales.  I didn’t find my true home until I found Hasbro.

Research companies that you are interested in.  Find a company with values that mirror what you bring for the best fit. Learn how to tell your story.
