One Way NCBiotech Helps Good Jobs Happen
Participants in 2012 Jobs Networking Event
When the North Carolina Biotechnology Center was approached by the local chapter of the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineering to partner on an upcoming conference, we knew it would be a good opportunity to tell our story.
We just didn’t know how good.
The partnership landed us at the full-day ISPE-CASA conference March 26 at the Raleigh Convention Center. We arrived with our “banner stand” table-top display and our literature in tow, and Team NCBiotech settled in.
It wasn’t long before a number of conference goers stopped by to find out a little more about the Biotech Center: “What does the Biotech Center do?” “What programs do you offer?” “Who can you connect me with?” The usual questions you get as an exhibitor at a conference.
But we really knew we could make a difference when we were approached by staff members from IPS (formerly Integrated Project Services). The Morrisville-based IPS North Carolina folks asked if we could connect them with talented people to fill some forthcoming job openings.
IPS specializes in complex facilities in hi-tech and highly regulated industries, providing technical consulting, engineering, construction and commissioning and qualification services.
No problem. We make connections that create biotech jobs.
Not only does the Biotech Center have an excellent “jobs board” on our website for life science job seekers and employers in N.C., but we’ve also established a highly popular monthly get-together for life science professionals interested in networking and exploring job opportunities: the NCBiotech Jobs Network.
The IPS folks were thrilled to hear about the opportunities created by NCBiotech. And they’ve connected with our Jobs Network team to arrange the best ways to accommodate their hiring push.
In an organization dedicated to making the connections that create jobs, I’m confident the connection we made at the ISPE conference will help IPS fill a number of jobs with highly skilled workers.
We’re looking forward to making the next connections.
