BioWorld, recognizing the increased need for finding qualified employees in the biotechnology industry, has added a new jobs site on its home page through a partnership with BioView. The service can be used by those seeking positions as well as those advertising them.
The service, available by clicking the "Jobs" link on the BioWorld home page (www.bioworld.com), averages more than 1,000 jobs each day. Job seekers will be able to post their resumes, and be able to access advertisements from biotech and pharmaceutical companies. Both services are free. There is a charge for employers posting openings.
"If you go to any biotechnology company's web site, you'll see most of them have an employment section with a long list of jobs that need to be filled. That's where BioWorld comes in," said Donald Johnston, vice president/group publisher at BioWorld. "Since we launched BioWorld Online, we've experienced a tremendous growth in readership. Now employers and job seekers can benefit from that growth, too."
