Covance, Promega and Others Join Online Job Fair for Postgraduate Life Scientists

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (Feb 20, 2012) – Bio Careers opened the Virtual Job Summit, its second online job fair for postgraduate life scientists on February 1st.  The Job Summit features science employers like Covance, PSC Biotech, Promega, Propel Careers, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and academic institutions like City of Hope, Columbia, Stony Brook, Stanford, and UTMB.

Employers can reach out to Bio Careers 40 Member communities across the U.S. without incurring the time and expense of traveling to multiple locations.  All 40 graduate programs are among the top in the U.S. in life science program rankings.

The Virtual Job Summit enables employers to recruit experienced postgraduate life scientists from the top 15 percent of U.S. training institutions. Employers are able to upload brochures, white papers, videos and webinar recordings to their virtual booths.  Jobseekers can browse among employers, download information and return during the two-day live event on April 4 and 5 to speak with employers via video chat.

Jobseekers will also enjoy a series of Webinar broadcasts and a Jobseeker Lounge, where they can video chat with each other about their experiences.

“This year, beside the usual webinars, we prepared a series of one to one chat discussions with our consultants on topics such as Resume Help or Advice on Interviews.” said President Nick Folger.  “For employers, this will be the most efficient, cost-effective way to recruit top-level, work-experienced, postgraduate life scientists.”
