The MedZilla Report: May 2009 Employment Outlook for Biotech/Pharma/Health
Date:6/24/2009

Health care employment rebounded in May, with 24,000 new jobs created even amid widespread announcements of layoffs. Pharmaceutical companies, though, laid off fewer employees in May than in any previous month of 2009.

The real change in postings came as a result of what types of jobs were posted; business development jobs, including research, were posted about 10 percent more overall than in April, while sales, marketing, and management positions all declined by an average of four percent.
