A growing community. A world of opportunity.
The life sciences sector employs thousands of our citizens with high-wage, high-education jobs and stimulates more than $18 Billion in state economic activity. One of WBBA’s top priorities is to help recruit, retain and train the talent needed to grow life sciences in Washington. We are driving to connect an innovative workforce to our emerging and dynamic organizations committed to better health solutions.
“We had a great experience posting our open positions with the WBBA Career Center. The staff was very helpful and we received many resumes from well qualified candidates, both locally and nationally. The response was so robust that we were able to fill our positions well in advance of projected deadlines. I will definitely be going back to the WBBA with all my future hires.” --- Ron Myers, MS, JD | CEO, Nexgenia, Inc.
