Horsham, PA, USA (Vocus) May 11, 2009 -- The Drug Information Association (DIA), the premiere neutral, global, multidisciplinary association of professionals involved in the lifecycle management of biopharmaceuticals, announces the launch of its new online Career Center --a highly targeted resource for online employment connections.
"Our new DIA Career Center provides a wider range of services and opportunities to job seekers looking for new professional opportunities and to employers seeking to find qualified professionals to fill available positions," says William Brassington, Acting DIA Worldwide Executive Director.
Both DIA members and non-members can use the DIA Career Center to reach qualified candidates. Employers can post jobs online, search for qualified candidates based on specific job criteria, create an online resume agent to email qualified candidates daily, and receive job activity statistics.
The DIA Career Center is a free service to job seekers who have access to employers and jobs in the biopharmaceutical industry. In addition to posting their resumes, job seekers can browse and view available jobs based on their criteria, save those jobs for later review, and create a search agent to provide email notifications of jobs that match their criteria.
Job seekers and employers also have access to the National Healthcare Career Network, a group of more 60 top healthcare associations and professional organizations, including the American Hospital Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Association of American Medical Colleges. DIA's alliance with the NHCN increases employers' reach to over 7,000 resumes, as well as job seekers' reach to over 1,500 job postings.
"We're very excited about the DIA Career Center because we know how critical it is for employers in the biopharmaceutical industry to attract first-rate talent with a minimum expenditure of time and resources," explains Marie Dray, President, DIA Board of Directors. "It is important for DIA to provide access to career opportunities for those seeking jobs."
