Trade group MichBio has launched a new jobs board on its website, President and CEP Stephen Rapundalo said last week.
The upgraded site comes via Association Career Network, which specializes in providing jobs boards for associations connected to health care and life sciences, he said.
The cost starts at $175 to post a listing, and MichBio members are eligible for a 20 percent discount. Employers receive monthly reports on updated résumés and can purchase additional advertising.
The site is free for job seekers, who can receive automatic job updates via e-mail.
“We’re pretty excited. We hope it grows,” Rapundalo said.
The new offering replaces a “pretty archaic and cumbersome” site that lacked functionality, he said. “It’s just far more robust,” he added.
The change came in response to member requests for a stronger jobs site.
Rapundalo said he thinks the life sciences job market is fairly stable, with pockets of growth.
As of last week, the new site had attracted eight listings.
