2)      How do I post a job?

Once you login to the member portal of MassBio.org click here to post a job (can also be accessed by scrolling to the bottom of the member portal, or clicking to the “Careers” tab). Complete all pieces of information that have asterisks (*), click “Preview” to review the posting, and then click “Post this job.” You may paste a description from word, notepad, or other word-processing application.

3)      How much does it cost to post jobs?

Fees for nonmember job postings depend on the number you plan to post. One job posting costs $285.00, but the more you post the more you save. Please click here to see full pricing.

4)      How long do jobs stay posted on the website?

Your job will stay posted for 90 days. If you would like to remove it before that time, login to your member portal account, go to the portal homepage and then click “Career Listings” along the left. Here you can deactivate or edit your posting.

5)      I would like to remove a position from your site.  How do I do this?

Once you login to your member portal account, go to the portal homepage and then click “Career Listings” along the left. Here you can deactivate your posting if you no longer wish to have it appear on the website. You can also edit the job posting here.

6)      If I post a job, will my contact information appear with the posting?

Your contact information will not appear unless you enter it in the “Contact Information” section of the job posting. This way you can post a job even if you will not be the primary contact for applicants.

7)      How can I edit my job posting?

Once you login to your member portal account, go to the portal homepage and then click “Career Listings” along the left. You will see your job postings and can edit from there.

8)      Can I access/edit my company’s job postings even though I did not post them?

Yes. Once you login to your member portal account, go to the portal homepage and then click “Career Listings” along the left you will see (and be able to edit or deactivate) all current and past listings from your company.

9)      When I try to log in, it tells me that I do not have the permission to post jobs. What should I do?

All accounts should come with permission to post jobs. Please email communications@massbio.org or call (617) 674-5100 to notify us of the problem. We will correct your access settings as soon as possible.

10)  I am not a member of MassBio, but I work at a Massachusetts biotech company. Can I post jobs? 

Yes, for a fee. One job posting costs $285.00, but the more you post the more you save. Please click here to see full pricing.

11)  Can we change our profile/address/name?

If you log into the Member Portal you can change your personal information by clicking on “My Profile.” If you find an error in your company’s information or address, please notify membership@massbio.org. Please note that when a company has multiple addresses, we can unfortunately only list one address, which is chosen by your company’s primary member representative, so in some cases your address may reflect a different address for your company than the one at which you are located. Please feel free to indicate a different or more specific address in the text of your job posting if necessary.

12)  Do I have to use the job categories for my posting? What if my job posting does not fit into only one/any category?

You do need to select a category. We understand this may sometimes be difficult but ask that you pick the closest category and consider reposting the job in multiple categories if necessary. While we feel we have been as comprehensive as possible, please let us know if there are categories you would like to see in the future by emailing communications@massbio.org.

13)  I can not copy and paste from MS Word into the posting template on the website. What should I do?

Please try pasting into notepad first and then pasting from there into the website text editor. There are at times formatting glitches, but using notepad should fix that problem. If you are still having trouble please let us know: communications@massbio.org or (617) 674 5100.

14)  I am having difficulty posting a position on your Careers page. All fields have been filled out but I still receive an error message. What should I do?

Email communications@massbio.org or call (617) 674-5100 for assistance.

15)  The company I work for directly is not a member organization, but our parent company is. Can I post jobs for free?

In most cases if your parent company is a member, your company is as well. Try to create an account by clicking here and using your company email. If the website recognizes your domain and, thus, membership, you will be able to create an account and then post jobs for free. If it does not work, please feel free to contact the membership team at membership@massbio.org or (617) 674-5100 to clarify if you are a member or not. If you are not a member but would like to post jobs, please click here to create your account.

16)  Is there a way to add jobs and have them show up under our specific organization rather than our parent company?

Unfortunately that is not an option at this time because of the way memberships are constructed in our database. We encourage you to be as clear as possible and identify your organization in the posting to ensure applicants know the right company to contact. We apologize for any inconvenience.

17)  I work at a non-member company for a member company (as a consultant or recruiter) and I would like to post jobs for them, how do I do this?

To do this you must have access to an email address provided by the company, at the company’s official email domain. (For example, in order to post a job for MassBio, you must login using an email from someone@massbio.org).  Once you have an email account set up please click here to create your account using that company email. This will ensure your postings are associated with the correct company.

18)  I would like to post a confidential job posting on the MassBio website.  Is it possible to post the position without using the company’s name?

If you are a recruiting company or agency, yes. The company your MassBio Member Portal account is associated with will appear on our website attached to the job posting. You do not need to include the name of the company for which you are posting.

19)  How can I advertise on the Careers page?

Advertising opportunities are available for the “post job” or “search job” sections of the Careers page. You can reserve for one year for just $10,000, six months for $5,500 or one month for $1,000. Please contact SJessica Roche at 617-674-5100 or jessica.roche@massbio.org  to learn more.

20)  I post jobs on a number of other websites. Is there a way to connect or stream postings to your site from another site?

There is no way to do that at this time.

21) How do I reactivate an expired job posting?

There is no way to automatically reactivate an expired job posting at this time. You must repost the job by creating a new listing (but you can copy-paste data into the new job posting, see below).

Once you login to your member portal account, go to the portal homepage and then click “Career Listings” along the left. Click "edit" on the job you wish to repost and then open a new browser tab,  click here to post a job and then copy-paste relevant data from the "edit" field of your prior job posting.
