The MedZilla Report for August 2009 -- Health Care Grows Another 28,000 While Hospitals And Insurers Feel Painful Pinch

osta Times). Insurers such as Blue Cross Blue Shield continue to shed employees; they have been forced to make deep cuts in the past few months, and in August, said they would lose another 650 employees over the final third of the year. Also, interestingly, contact lenses have been at the forefront of job elimination in August, with CooperVision laying off more than 570 and Vistakon, which produces Acuvue-brand contact lenses for Johnson & Johnson, will cut 180 from their quality assurance and global supply chain divisions.

With the economy's present troubles and so many people out of work, the contact lens industry taking a hit makes surprising sense. “Both employed and unemployed people are cutting back,” said Dr. Frank Heasley, founder and president of MedZilla.com. “Contact lenses could be considered a discretionary expense — they need to be replaced more frequently than glasses, and require special solutions to ensure the lenses themselves remain clean and usable. Layoffs like these are an unfortunate by-product of the recession and the frugal-living mentality it's brought about.”

Another by-product of the changing face of the job market is the way large job boards such as Monster and CareerBuilder will be forced to change to maintain their dominance in a world where niche sites like Dice, ComputerJobs, and MedZilla draw more and more jobs away from the big sites. Members of the MedZilla.com community — one of that site's major draws for job seekers and industry experts — suggest that recruiters will play an even-bigger role in securing new jobs and that job boards and the unsolicited resumes garnered from them will be used to fill early career positions — those that require fewer than five years experience. “While niche job boards and recruiters are important for any job search, most new positions are found through personal contacts,” Dr. Heasley said. “Building connection
