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

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.
