The MedZilla Report: April 2009 Employment Outlook for Biotech/Pharma/Health
Date:5/25/2009

r flu season as a primary reason for layoffs, despite the worldwide panic over H1N1 flu ("swine flu").

As has been the case over the past six months, job seekers seem to be reacting to the news of layoffs and shrinkage in the industry by sitting tight and waiting for an upswing. No state saw a significant increase in the number of job seekers looking for new jobs; as for what they were looking for when they did search, relative flatness made it difficult to judge, but clinical research, traditionally a field that resists negative change, fell by almost one percent.

Interestingly, qualified employees were still highly sought-after in California -- even though several California-based health systems announced layoffs in April, companies increased their candidate search efforts by more than 11 percent since March 31. There was also a 7.5 percent jump in New Jersey, and 1.5 to three percent increases in several other states. Only in Texas was there a significant drop in companies seeking new employees, though it was a large one -- more than ten percent. Sales, managers, and research associates were less sought-after by companies planning to hire, though employers increased their efforts to find new oncologists by almost 1.5 percent.

April was also something of an anomalous month in job postings; numbers from MedZilla.com indicated jumps of 15 percent or more in postings for primary care, and a combined increase of more than 50 percent in management positions. That number, however, is likely artificially inflated, owing to the number of management positions being left open so companies can save money by not hiring employees that will demand higher paychecks. A parallel could be drawn to the U.S. television industry, which is seeing news anchors -- traditionally some of the highest-paid employees -- losing their jobs or retiring and not being replaced.

With all the bad news about jobs -- even taking into account the 17,000 new
