Lansing biotech companies to host joint job fair

By  | 

LANSING, MI. (WILX) - Lansing biotech companies will be hosting a collaborative job fair this week.

On January 30, Neogen, Emergent BioSolutions, and Niowave will be hosting a joint job fair in Lansing.

The companies are planning on-the-spot interviews for immediate openings.

The positions range from entry-level positions, through research and supervisory positions. Also, openings in manufacturing facilities, accounting and human resources, as well as in each of the companies’ biotechnology specialties.

“The joint job fair represents an excellent opportunity for job seekers to learn more about the openings at three companies at the same time and place. And, if you like what you hear, we can begin the employment process right there with an initial job interview,” said Julie Mann, Neogen’s Senior Director of Corporate Human Resources. “As the three biotechnology companies with major operations in Lansing, all facing the same challenges with filling open positions in the current job market, it just made sense that we got together to host a joint job fair.”

The event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Neighborhood Empowerment Center in Lansing at 600 W. Maple.
