Opening the Door II
Building Careers for New Graduates in Biotechnology
Wage subsidy programs have proven to be critical not just for the growth and development of small- and medium-sized businesses within Canada’s bio-economy, but also for new graduates.
Since 2005, BioTalent Canada’s Career Focus wage subsidy program has helped over 800 new graduates enter the workforce and gain valuable experience as they pursue a career in the bio-economy.
Opening the Door II is a sequel to BioTalent Canada’s previous report on youth employment, Opening the Door. The report provides insight into trends, common issues encountered and the quantitative/qualitative benefits provided by wage subsidy programs to both new graduates and biotechnology employers.
The current report is a retrospect from 2013–2017 and reflects the views and data captured on 556 individuals.
