A Second Chance At Employment For Pennsylvania Life Sciences Workers



4/17/2014 7:17:36 AM

They aren't the only ones with jobs, others are hiring right now! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)

The Pa. Life Sciences Connect, a public/private initiative formed earlier this year, put out a “call for talent” this week seeking people for its pool of displaced life sciences workers. The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development in January awarded a $750,000 grant to the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania and Montgomery County Economic Development Corp. to create the program. Ashton Tweed, a Wayne, Pa. recruitment agency that specializes in the life-sciences industry, is also part of the initiative. The program is designed to match researchers, executives and others laid off from pharmaceutical manufacturers — where thousands of jobs have been cut in recent years.

Don't forget, hundreds of biopharma companies are hiring! (We know you can't resist.)
