EMPLOYMENT LINKS FOR THE
These are trying times for Ph.D's searching for suitable employment, a
problem that is not confined to the biomedical sciences or to the United
States. The internet offers a particularly useful medium for exchange of
employment-related information. However, sifting through this large and
ever-increasing volume of information can be a time-consuming task for
the job-seeker with specialized career options. This set of links is
being compiled by a fellow scientist to assist colleagues in the
biomedical and other sciences who may be exploring the internet for
on-line employment information.
