DENVER, June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today BioSpace, the leading life sciences employment and news Web site, launched the 2012-2013 Pharm Country™ Hotbed Campaign, marking the campaign's 11th edition.
The campaign highlights companies from Niagara Falls to Atlantic City. Logos for participating companies are included on an electronic and print map promoting members both online as well as at industry events and career fairs.
Ten percent of all unfilled biotechnology and pharmaceutical jobs in the United States on BioSpace are posted in the Pharm Country Hotbed region. In addition, over the last year more than 115 companies in the area posted biotech, pharmaceutical and clinical research jobs on Biospace.com, and 65 percent of those jobs were at least at the senior or management level.
With 18 percent of all job seekers on BioSpace located in Pharm Country, placement on the Hotbed map offers a clear competitive advantage in landing top tier candidates.
