The two companies today unveiled a personality-based test which produces customized career recommendations for those in clinical and life-science fields.

"As Bio Career Center is the first and only career service dedicated to expanding professional options for life-science Ph.D.s and M.D.s, it's a natural fit for AdvisorTeam's customized personality tools which can target specific career paths for this challenging industry," said Kip Parent, CEO of AdvisorTeam.

This experience is combined with AdvisorTeam's professionals who have created an online enabled technology to help people and organizations better understand themselves and others.

"There are loads of personality tests out there and a lot are used in business for team building, but what AdvisorTeam has done, is rigorously developed its capability to help people figure out how their personality fits with their career choice," said Nick Folger, president of Bio Career Center. "I believe the collaboration of AdvisorTeam and Bio Career Center will help address the needs of life-science postgraduates."
