The MedZilla Report: October 2008 Employment Outlook for Biotech/Pharma/Health
Date:12/3/2008

Though it cannot be said for certain, Alina’s method of simply leaving open positions open and not advertising for new ones may be more widespread than expected. No state except New Jersey saw job postings increase (or decrease) by more than 1.5 percent. Of the postings available for candidates, qualified oncologists and those who work under that umbrella appeared to be in a position to at the very least find places to apply; in October, the number of postings in that arena increased by more than three percent. Companies also increased their postings for management, business development, and clinical research positions. There were also drops in the numbers of posted jobs; sales was off 4.5 percent, and primary care was off 3.5.

Companies that actively searched for candidates to bring in for interviews and possible employment always change from month to month, but it is rare to see a negative swing as wide as in California in October; employers there reduced their searches for candidates by more than eight percent. However, candidates in Wisconsin, Connecticut, South Carolina, Oregon, and Missouri all should expect a slight increase in the chance they will be contacted by a potential employer – each of those states saw increases of two percent or more. Most of those positions are likely to go to surgeons, laboratory technicians, and, surprisingly, medical writers and editors. For the first time in several months, there was a noticeable surge in those types of positions – four percent worth.

Even though positions were available in October, it did not seem as though candidates appreciably changed their job search behaviors. No state’s candidates increased or decreased their searches by more than one percent, and when looking at specific searches for positions, the change was the same – very small. This could be related to the fact that the calendar year is ending; some non-medical companies have retained recruit
