Formerly in Pharma? Looking for Job?

Information on this program got buried in my email and I am late sending it out, but here goes

If you know a biotech or pharmaceutical professional who lost a job in New Jersey, that jobseeker may qualify for up to $4,000 in tuition payments under a special program from the US Department of Labor grant known as “Bio-1.

To qualify, he or she must live in Middlesex, Mercer, Monmouth, Somerset, or Hunterdon counties.

One place to take these classes, perhaps even online, is the New Jersey Institute of Technology, which was the source of this information. From the release: “NJIT provides single graduate classes, certificates and MS degrees for professionals in this industry sector in areas such as biomedical engineering, pharmaceutical technology, pharmaceutical management, biostatistics, physiology and human computer interaction, computing and information systems, project and technology management, engineering, technical communication and the sciences.”

There may still be enough time to qualify for these classes through the county One-
Stop Career Center,
but the classes begin next week (the week of January 19). Many classes are fully online.

For more information about NJIT programs, contact Matthew Kitchen, by telephone toll-free at 800-624-9850 or by email

Can these funds be used at another institution, perhaps one with classes that start later in the month? I don’t know and frankly have not had the time to find out. If somebody does find out, please let me know.
