John G. Graham Jr.

Amgen Global Talent Acquisition

Sr. Manager Global Employer Brand & Recruitment Marketing

As a creative communicator with a habit of connecting people to brands through authentic experiences, I’ve always dreamed big and to this day, am driven by the question “Why?” I take pleasure in finding new and innovative ways to understand audience need states, delivering the right messages to the right person at the right time on the right platform, and disrupting the status quo. I cut my teeth in social as an independent recording artist where I discovered the value of forging direct to consumer relationships. I loved it so much I founded my own media consultancy to help others establish their own social and digital brands. In true millennial fashion, I provided performance analytics to execs at companies like MARS, Citizens Bank, & QVC by day, and opened for major recording artists at venues like the House of Blues by night. I now direct my passion towards disrupting the Pharmaceutical industry’s approach to talent acquisition and employer branding through digital strategy and activating authenticity at scale. I support over 100 countries worldwide to build bridges between career aspiration and opportunity. My wife Sana, two beautiful children, John III and Marian, and me currently call the Los Angeles burbs home.
