We were happy to once again showcase our bestselling microbiology and biological sciences textbooks at the 2018 American Society for Microbiology Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) held in Austin, Texas. Account Manager, Ashley Caissie, Education Technology Consultant, Liam Butler, and Matt Kane, Director of Product Management (not pictured), enjoyed speaking with the 350 higher ed. instructors who traveled from all over the US and as far as Australia, to gather, discuss, and share ideas on how they can "improve teaching and learning in the biological sciences."

Before joining the Rights and Media team at Jones & Bartlett Learning, I worked as an admissions counselor for three years. Though I was definitely ready to say goodbye to making 100 phone calls per week, assuring parents that their child would definitely get an internship, and having conversations about financial aid which were far above my pay grade, I have missed the facetime with one’s customer that comes with a sales position. Thus, when presented with the opportunity to represent Jones & Bartlett Learning along with Matt Kane, Director of Product Management and Lindsay White, Marketing Manager at the NSTA 2018 National Conference on Science Education in Atlanta, I was thrilled to dust off the old college fair skills and learn about marketing the text books I work on behind the scenes.
Employment of biological technicians is projected to grow 10% from 2012 to 2022 (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2014-15 Edition). The recently published Molecular Biotechnology by Carolyn Dehlinger, emphasizes careers in molecular biotechnology, profiles of major projects and researchers, and expansive discussions of bioethical concerns and current research, making it the ideal starting point for students pursuing a career as a biological technician.
