Local jobs in the biomedical field are plenty and area companies are having trouble finding qualified people to fill them. To help remedy that,
have teamed up to host a virtual biomedical job fair
March 26-30 to attract talented people in the field to the region.
“One of the consistent complaints we hear is that small and large biomedical companies in the region are not getting enough talent to meet their growth desires,” says Baiju Shah, president and CEO of BioEnterprise. “There are many, many open positions.”
Interested candidates from around the country can register for the job fair and create a profile. Participants can then log in during the fair to search available openings. The fair is free for attendees. Twenty four employers will be participating.
“What we have designed here is an attempt to attract people from around the country,” says Shah. "We thought it was an incredibly important to present a holistic picture of the industry.”
Global Cleveland plans to host similar events in the IT software, financial services and healthcare fields.
"The region is rife with opportunity,” says Shah. “We want to create a momentum, if not a stampede, of individuals returning to Cleveland to take these positions.”
