The article in this week’s C&EN tells
about several experiences in the
merging, acquiring and still evolving
Pharma / Biotech field (3-16-09).
A telling bar chart on Page 26
summarizes higher level job cuts
over the last 3 years as companies

While the links in the BUSINESS/
Who’s Next? article seemed at
first to be relevant for all job hunters,
most are more relevant for mid-career
people in the field. Of the examples
are stories about employees finding
out reading about news on blogs
before being told in person.
Other trends in articles appearing
in the issue, however, do seem
relevant for people interested in
developing new careers in the field.
