The MedZilla Report for April 2010 - Pharma Layoffs Drop Below 400 in March; Health Care Adds Another 27,000 Jobs
Date:4/15/2010

ercent more jobs on job boards in March. Of those, almost five percent were in primary care, supporting the BLS's numbers on health care; another 4.6 percent were in product development. "We did find that job seekers didn't change their behavior much in March," said Dr. Frank Heasley, CEO of MedZilla. "Given the low layoff numbers across pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and health care, however, that isn't a surprise."
   
Another factor in the nearly-negligible change in job searches by job seekers may be that so many companies have left positions unfilled for so long, leading the job seekers to focus on alternate methods of gaining employment. For example, Genentech in San Francisco, Calif., has had 600 openings for the past few years (bizjournals.com, 3/26/10). "If the economy has truly turned the corner," said John Burkhardt, MedZilla's Operations Director, "then networking becomes more important than ever, especially if you're trying to get a better job, move to a new company, or secure a promotion." Despite that, though, new jobs may be hitting the boards soon -- in Ontario, Canada, the 2010 budget specifically earmarks dollars for biotechnology (pharmaceutical-jobs.net), and there are the aforementioned positions still open at Genentech.
   
News was not all good, though; several hospitals and heath systems announced layoffs in March. They included Sisters of Mercy Health System in the midwest, forced to cut more than 225 jobs and close 288 open positions (stltoday.com, 3/26/10), and the Seton Family of Hospitals in Austin, Texas, citing the familiar call of patients who are uninsured or unable to pay as they announced 150 job cuts (stat
