Foresight Institute, a nonprofit educational organization focused on molecular nanotechnology, and Working In Ltd., an employment and education web company, have launched a comprehensive resource website, Workingin-Nanotechnology.com. This site is designed to meet the increasing demand for career, education and training information in the emerging field of nanotechnology.
"Foresight Institute is receiving a flood of inquiries from individuals asking what positions are available and what education requirements are needed for a career in nanotechnology," said Christine Peterson, president of Foresight Institute. "We are pleased to be associated with a site that includes an educational component that lists schools and programs, as well as job vacancies."
Workingin-Nanotechnology.com has several innovative features, including a new way of presenting vacancies to job seekers. There are three specific job search engines on the site: Nano Jobs by Science, Nano Jobs by Industry and Nano Jobs by Technologies. There is also a complete Resume/Database tool allowing employers to search for suitable applicants by science and by Nanotech experience.
Other features include an education and training section which enables students from graduate to middle school levels to source relevant course programs offered in nanotechnology worldwide.
"We have over 2,500 registered job seekers on the site and all of these candidates are highly qualified," said Nic Mortland, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Working In Nanotechnology.com. "I've spoken with over 150 employers to discuss our services and all are enthusiastic about the site design and ease of use. Three of our early registered user employers include Zyvex Corporation, Nanophase Technologies, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory."
