Ann Arbor-based MichBio, the trade association for Michigan’s biosciences industry, announced that it has added a new online MichBio Career Center dedicated to serving employers and job seekers in the biosciences industry.
The new job posting tool enables employers to post one or multiple positions for various lengths of time at affordable prices and receive monthly updates of recently uploaded resumes.
They are also able to highlight their listings with “featured employer” or banner ads on the site for an additional fee. MichBio members receive a 20 percent discount on postings and advertising.
Job seekers can set up free accounts to upload resumes and receive automated emailed job alerts. Resumes can also be posted anonymously.
“In a MichBio member survey last January, one of things we heard was that members wanted more assistance in posting and finding bioscience employment opportunities,” said Stephen Rapundalo, MichBio president and CEO. “Since then, we have been searching for a program to fulfill that need, and the launch of this full-service MichBio Career Center on our Web site accomplishes that goal.”
MichBio is the biosciences industry trade association and the official Michigan affiliate of the Biotechnology Industry Organization, BIO, which represents biotechnology companies across America and in 33 other nations.
MichBio also works closely with other national organizations including AdvaMed, Medical Device Manufacturers Association, PhRMA, among others.
Formed in 1993 as the Michigan Biosciences Industry Association, MichBio represents the more than 500 bioscience-related companies in the state.
