Clinical research industry is growing everywhere in term of their hubs, sub branches and revenues and is spreading all over the world and has become a global industry. They have more trials and studies to run at various different sites that make the more sponsor investing money for the trials.
This CRO industry is becoming more competitive every year and has more opportunities and available positions but the numbers of applicants for those positions are way more than available positions.
Just go for it:
People who are looking for their career in clinical industry should accept any offer from the recruiters just to get into the industry regardless of what pay and benefits they are providing. CRO industry is experienced based industry and starting from the entry level positions is the best opportunity to get that experience for getting higher positions and higher benefits in future. They should go for any opportunity whether is entry level, internship, volunteering, contractor and working as an assistant with any researcher.
Fancy degree doesn’t matter:
People with the fancy degree does not make any difference in clinical industry because they just have knowledge but they do not know how to implement those instructions because they do not have any experience of working at any research trials. Sponsors want experienced people to conduct their million dollar studies and they do not care for their degrees.
CRO industry is experience based industry where sponsors want experienced people to conduct their million dollar studies. People with no research experience should start from the bottom to get the basic experience of the industry that will help them in future to grow and get higher in the industry. They should not care about the pay and benefits at start but in future they can move to any other CRO where they can demand their desired pay and benefits.
