On the road again! Ok, we may not be able to croon like Willie Nelson, but we’re definitely superstars in our own way here in the Triangle. Our #SmartyPants, top jobs and rapidly expanding industry clusters make us a pretty sought after location for talent and companies. With a message that awesome, we’ve got to spread the word, so Work in the Triangle is headed to Chicago for the 20th annual BIO International Convention and BIO Career Fair.
April 22-25th we’ll be at the largest global event for the biotechnology industry promoting the Triangle, our jobs and our impressive presence in the biotech industry. This gives us the opportunity to address a international audience of #SmartyPants and convention attendees, so it’s only right that we focus on matching talented professionals with employment opportunities available in the Triangle.
In case you didn’t know, the Triangle is consistently recognized as one of the nation’s leaders in biotechnology and is a part of the third largest biotech cluster in the nation. We also are home to the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, the first state-sponsored center dedicated to growing a biotech industry. Pretty cool right? Of course it is! It’s something that we’re proud of and want the rest of the world to know it too! So, to promote our awesomeness, BIO Convention and Career Fair attendees can engage with us by meeting with companies and Triangle representatives at our career booth at the BIO Career Fair (#207) or at the North Carolina Pavilion at the BIO Convention at the (#2617).
You can never have too much of a good thing, so also as part of the event’s activities, BIO attendees and companies from the Research Triangle can participate in our “Virtual Career Fair”. We’ve teamed up with bioscience partners and companies in the Triangle to take our efforts into the twittersphere. We’re working together to send all the top triangle jobs bursting onto your timeline. Follow our handle @WorkTriangleNC and the hashtags #BIO2013 and #WorkintheTriangle to view real-time bioscience career opportunities. This will take place periodically throughout the BIO Convention, but the majority of our jobs tweets will be headed your way from 2pm-7pm Monday, April 22nd, in conjunction with BIO’s physical career fair. This is our way of making sure you don’t miss out on a thing just because you’re not in the windy city. And just to get your appetite started, here are a few of the companies that we will be featuring:
As you can see, this is a pretty sweet opportunity. If you’ll be in the area, be sure to stop by the booth and check us out. If you can’t make it, come hang with us on Twitter; we always enjoy great company. Jobs, talent, and biotech, does it get much better than this? Look out Chicago! The #SmartyPants are coming to town!
