The MedZilla Report for March 2010 - Layoffs Down in February Despite Merck Merger; Health Care Employment Up Again
Date:3/16/2010

y 15 percent even as many of the medicines made both by Merck and new acquisition Schering-Plough continue to bring in more revenue for the company (rttnews.com, 2/16/10). There were, however, isolated bright spots for the industry, such as in Louisville, Ky., where a pharmaceutical startup, Bio Pharma Logistics, is expected to hire more than two dozen employees (bizjournals.com, 2/23/10).

"It's encouraging to see companies looking for new sales representatives," said Dr. Frank Heasley, CEO of MedZilla. "Given how many reps were laid off in the past two years -- especially the highly-skilled ones -- even a tiny upswing can be seen as excellent news." MedZilla also reported increases in candidate searches for nurses -- up more than five percent.

The candidate search information was very encouraging for job seekers in Georgia, where companies increased their search efforts by more than ten percent. Several others were up by 2.5 to 3.5 percent. On the other end of the spectrum, though, were Massachusetts, California, and New Jersey -- where Merck is headquartered -- where searches dropped by four to five percent overall. And activity by job seekers themselves remained flat, as it has for several months.
