New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) January 11, 2006
Pharmaopportunities announced today the launch of an Internet recruitment portal for the life science and healthcare industries, offering targeted pharmaceutical jobs and biotech jobs -- as well as networking and training resources for the competitive Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Medical Device and Pharmacy markets.
Located at http://www.pharmaopportunities.com, the site offers advanced features such as resume distribution services, a vendor directory and a “job alert” system that notifies job seekers by e-mail of opportunities that match their search criteria. Candidates can also search by industry and specialty, rather than limited keyword searches used at competing sites.
A partnership with Mediwire, a syndicated online resource for healthcare professionals, enables the portal to offer resource information from award-winning journals like Medical Economics, Drug Topics, Managed Healthcare Executive and other titles and allows employers to reach thousands of professionals seeking life science and healthcare jobs.
In addition to offering a free site to post resumes, the site provides targeted networking tools for life sciences professionals, equipping them to advance their career and build communication pipelines. Employers also benefit from real-time metrics to display how many applications have been submitted and how many times a position has been searched and viewed. Free repostings are also offered to employers.
An anonymous resume feature enables individuals to list their experience and qualifications in a protected environment -- enabling both active and passive job seekers to stay connected to the employment market, while maintaining full control of their confidential information as they search for jobs.
The community approach encourages job seekers to stay current with industry trends, salary information and more while locating new job opportunities, explains Michele Gordon, Director of Sales & Marketing. Candidates may also network with other professionals and locate training courses in life sciences and health care.
“We believe in quality, not quantity,” said Winston Burton, President and CEO. “Pharmaopportunities’ goal is to reduce the total cost per hire and cycle times for life science and healthcare companies, by providing them with the tools and resources they need to find qualified professionals. With these time-consuming steps eliminated from the process, companies can increase their ability to stay on the cutting edge with the latest technology that drives scientific advances.”
Pharmaopportunities is a privately-held corporation started by Life Science and Healthcare professionals, Computer Programmers and Human Resource professionals who have all worked in various life science and healthcare companies in the United States. Each member of the company is passionately committed to fulfilling the hiring needs of life science and healthcare companies and supporting active jobseekers in furthering their careers and finding science jobs.
