Take heart, lab rats. Drugmakers may be eliminating research jobs up and down the East Coast, but Perrigo is desperate to fill openings. The Michigan company, which markets OTC and prescription meds, went so far as to post a video on YouTube showing a group of chemists grooving to a mechanized beat (actually, some work in Perrigo IT and some are actors).
The hope is that some real scientists will apply. "Over the last couple of years, we have been working on initiatives to get the Perrigo name out there," Kim Shriver, Perrig's talent acquisition manager, tells The Grand Rapids Press. "We've been thinking about a different audience." You don't have to know how to dance to get a job, though.
