Drugmakers Like Gilead, Mylan and Novo — Not Big Pharma — Are Job Creators
With a couple of exceptions, including 12 percent job growth at AstraZeneca, little changed last year when it came to Big Pharma's employment numbers.

What is your resume? A hassle you must undergo to walk into an interview with any hope of getting hired? Or is it a history of your professional life — ready to be shared with others to make lasting, career-forging connections?
