Thermo Fisher is laying off but others are hiring! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)

As Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO) works toward the completion of its $13.6 billion purchase of Life Technologies, the medical device and lab equipment company revealed in a federal filing last week that it laid off 655 employees - about 1.7 percent of its total worldwide - during the first half of 2013. The Waltham, Mass. company did not announce the layoffs, and company spokesman Ron O’Brien told Mass High Tech he doesn’t know if any of them were in Massachusetts.

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