Washington, D.C. (August 1, 2013) – The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) today announced the launch of BIO Jobs, an online resource for biotechnology employment opportunities.
This new job listing website is free for job seekers and will feature employment opportunities from across the spectrum of the biotech industry, including healthcare, food and agricultural, and industrial and environmental sectors.
The new service is available to all companies, but BIO members will receive significant discounts when posting employment opportunities. BIO Jobs has partnered with SmartBrief to allow companies to advertise job openings in BIO SmartBrief, which reaches over 43,000 subscribers daily.
" BIO Jobs is the only site of its kind catering to the specialized employment requirements of biotechnology companies. Because many fields within this industry require specific skills and training, it can often be difficult to find qualified candidates for position openings," said Jim Greenwood, BIO’s President and CEO. "Our new job listing website will quickly connect the right talent with employers."
Go to jobs.bio.org and recruit the industry’s best candidates.
BIO Jobs offers the following benefits for both job seekers and employers:
A searchable resume database of qualified candidates
Detailed position openings
Manage jobs and applicant activity
Fill your jobs more quickly with easy access to a large talent pool
Access analytical activity reports
"BIO is the leading advocacy voice of the biotechnology industry, and helping companies expand is part of our mission. Through BIO Jobs, we will connect qualified applicants with employers, which is a natural extension of our services," said Greenwood.
