About The Biotech Work Portal

The Biotech Work Portal ( provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date labor market information available about the U.S. biotechnology industry. It offers innovative technology solutions that enable online networking, interactive data dissemination, and real-time user contributions and participation.

The Biotech Work Portal was developed by the San Diego Workforce Partnership, Inc., (Workforce Partnership) through a grant awarded under the President's High Growth Job Training Initiative, as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration.

The Workforce Partnership developed the structure and contents of the Biotech Work Portal with the help and guidance of a National Biotechnology Advisory Committee, composed of representatives from biotechnology industry, biotechnology educational programs, and workforce development organizations, as well as labor market information professionals from across the country.

The Advisory Committee defined the biotechnology industry and its segments in NAICS terms, and built a crosswalk between industry-defined occupational titles and SOC occupational titles. This enables the Biotech Work Portal to take advantage of the government's industry and occupational statistics.

The Portal's contents are targeted to biotechnology employers, employees, job seekers, and educators, as well as students and labor market researchers.
