SANTA CRUZ, Calif., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio Careers, the leading online career service for life science postgraduates, is pleased to announce the launch of Individual Memberships. Previously, Bio Careers was available only to life science postgraduates affiliated with one of its member institutions. Now, membership is open to individuals associated with top-ranked U.S. and non-U.S. life science institutions, as ranked by the Academic Ranking of World Universities.
The expansion of membership to individuals is a significant development for the online career service. "A third of those who register on our site have been unable to become members because they have lacked affiliation," said President Nick Folger. "Now, those and others who didn't register because they couldn't become members have the opportunity to join and use our services."
Bio Careers is a unique solution that gives companies a cost-effective and efficient method of recruiting the nation's leading life scientists. It is the only online career service that caters exclusively to the needs of post-graduate life scientists. Bio Careers also has the distinction of being the only career service to directly assist training institutions. In fact, more than 30 of the country's top 50 training centers are institutional members of Bio Careers, including the National Institutes of Health, Stanford, Caltech, Columbia, Emory, and University of Pennsylvania. Participating universities embed a link on their Website to give students free access to Bio Careers.
Established in 2006, Bio Careers is devoted to expanding professional options for life science postgraduates and MDs. Members can take advantage of career resources, job postings and free tools, including industry articles, assessment tools, an active blog, webinars, and employer research. Individual memberships are available for $19.95 a year or a one-time fee of $39.90.
With the country's most extensive job listings for life science postgraduates, Bio Careers also offers time-saving recruitment services to employers. They can post and manage jobs openings, search for and manage job candidates, and create a company profile. Employers can also recruit and increase awareness about their organization through tours, speaking engagements, and career fairs. Companies can further enhance their exposure by advertising, hosting a webinar or submitting targeted emails through Bio Careers. The email service can be targeted by school, geographic location, degree, scientific discipline and years of experience.
