John McCormick, CSAM
Director, Pharmaceutical Search

(516) 364-9290 ext. 122


I joined MR Woodbury in 1991. At that time there was a grass roots unit supporting the pharmaceutical industry. I participated in a key role to help develop a visible and successful business unit that today offers business solutions to a wide range of candidates and companies. I have achieved the level of Certified Senior Account Manager (CSAM). This is the highest level of recognition within our organization. It is awarded to a limited number of individuals who complete extensive training and pass a comprehensive examination. My previous background includes an M.S. in Labor and Industrial Relations and a successful career in Human Resources management ranging in areas of responsibilities in Employee Relations, Compensation, Organizational Development, and Staffing.


Integrity and Respect. These are words that have special meaning to me. My knowledge of recruiting, qualifying talent, and negotiating win-win solutions for my candidates and clients has established me as a valued partner in business. My integrity allows me to clearly communicate the desired objectives of the employment process. I don't have hidden agendas. I recognize the potential impact of my influence on the job seeker. It is a responsibility that I take seriously. I treat people with respect and I am sensitive to their issues. I've been told that I am a creative thinker and that I can look at issues that may be "out of the box" to bring them in line with conventional wisdom to negotiate the best scenarios for candidates and clients.

People I Recruit

I specifically support the pharmaceutical industry. I work primarily with intermediate level professionals to executive management. I seek specialists who know how to bring their acquired experiences to a new environment make immediate contributions. If you do not have the prerequisite skills I will tell you immediately, so that you can find a more appropriate source for your job search.


"John was very helpful in taking me through the job interview, the offer and acceptance. He knows his job, and knew how to pay attention to my specific needs almost to a point where he was a part of my family. John is also an excellent negotiator. He is on top of the issues. He kept me in the game by requiring me to communicate in advance what my specific needs were for me to accept an offer."
