BOSTON, MA, September 3, 2003 - Massachusetts Technology Corporation (MTC), a leading provider of career and talent resources in biopharmaceuticals and healthcare, today announced their hireCentral network of healthcare career & talent hubs (which includes hireBio, hireRx, hireMedical and hireNursing), have reached several key combined milestones – 60,000 candidate profiles and 250 customers.

According to Richard Kneece, CEO of MTC, hireMedical, hireNursing, hireRx and hireBio address growing needs faced by healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms. “With significant shortages of nurses, allied health workers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology professionals, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find the right person, in the right location at the right time. We’ve built solid industry-focused communities for these professionals and can help organizations of all sizes meet their talent needs in both healthcare and life sciences.”

The American Hospital Association estimates that in the nation’s hospitals, 126,000 registered nurse (RN) positions (11 percent of the total) are vacant. In addition, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that total employment in the pharmaceutical industry will increase by 23 percent through 2005 and that growth in healthcare positions will surpass 25% through 2006.

With customers such as Amgen, GE Medical, Biogen, Florida Hospital, Cedars-Sinai and Pfizer, the hireCentral healthcare career and talent hubs have become the premier destinations for job seekers in life sciences and healthcare. The network reaches over 250,000 unique visitors each month. Features include job searching, professional discussion forums, specialized career focus areas, and career development tools such as education and licensing information.

MTC’s long-term plans include more than just helping healthcare and life science firms find people. Kneece explains, “We’ll be launching new and innovative advertising programs to attract life science, allied health workers and nurses, and building e-learning and career tools for professionals in the industries we serve. We’ll continue to be the leading destination for healthcare and life science firms to find specialized talent, and for individuals to make their ongoing career decisions.”
