The MedZilla Report: Febraury 2009 Employment Outlook for Biotech/Pharma/Health
Date:3/30/2009

n Ontario -- announced layoffs in February, the numbers were generally smaller in scope than those coming out of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. For the most part -- only two exceptions out of more than two dozen -- job cuts were kept under 100 people. This was reflected in where companies were searching for new employees; California saw a drop of almost six percent, Massachusetts almost four percent, and Missouri 3.3 percent. However, there was good news out of Florida, where companies increased their search efforts by more than 5.5 percent, and also from Illinois and Indiana, with increases of more than four percent. And, even better, most of those increases came from companies looking to hire physicians, laboratory technicians, and nurses, three positions that have not often seen jumps of more than two percent -- respectively, searches for those positions went up by 2.4 percent, 2.5 percent, and 2.3 percent. There was also a 1.7 percent increase in the number of jobs posted by companies seeking qualified doctors.
   
The trend of applicants not increasing (or decreasing) their job search activities has continued. No state saw a swing of more than 0.8 percent in either direction by qualified applicants seeking new jobs. The news coming from the biotechnology and pharmaceutical fields, however, has led to a sharp rise in the number of qualified sales associates attempting to secure employment -- almost 5.5 percent more in February than January. Also, as companies reorganize and eliminate management positions, those now-jobless managers have begun searching for new jobs in earnest; there was an increase of almost two percent in that area.
   
One factor that might have led to a more normal month for health care employment is President Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, commonly called the Stimulus Bill or Stimulus Package. In it, $147.7 billion dollars have been earmarked for the health care indus
