SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio Career Center (http://www.BioCareerCenter.com), an online job board and careers tool site for life-science professionals, and AdvisorTeam (http://www.AdvisorTeam.com), an innovative leader in online personality assessments, have joined forces to provide a new, focused program for a specialized group of skilled workers. 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.

Bio Career Center's staff works with employers and provides deep, rich content focused on all of the alternatives that life-sciences Ph.D.s and M.D.s have before them. The company also works with higher learning institutions including: University of California, Berkeley, Caltech, Scripps Institute, Stanford, University of California at San Francisco, University of Pennsylvania and University of Washington. Last month, Bio Career Center added Emory University, University of Colorado Denver and Vanderbilt University to its fold, rounding out an already elite consortium of higher education institutions. 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."

AdvisorTeam has a successful track record of producing results such as increased team effectiveness and productivity by matching individuals to their career interests, AdvisorTeam improves employee communication and reducing workplace conflict by helping individuals better understand themselves and those around them through career counseling and job placement.

"Understanding your personality is of tremendous importance when looking for a career that will not only fit your area of expertise, but provide professional satisfaction," said Parent. "We find time and again, the people who find success and are passionate about their work are well matched based on personality to their chosen profession."
