So you decided after all the commercials that you were going to go ahead and sign up to learn how to become a pharmacy technician. You did your due diligence and found a school that would be respected and even accepted once you passed your certification exams and went out into the real world. Now after everything it’s time to get a job that you can be happy with. Yes after all that pharmacy technician training, terms and formulas stuck in your brain that you dream about them at night, you have to brave the cold world and get a job.
You would think that after spending all that time, money and effort that a job would just land in your lap, but we know it just never happens that way. No matter how qualified you are and how many tassels were around your hat after graduation, you may need a little help getting the pharmacy tech jobs you want. One thing that I’ve realized over a period time is that yes you should spend as much time as possible learning your craft, but equal time in networking is also necessary. That networking could be the difference between sitting on the couch or working with a pharmacist.
Whether having a helping hand or landing those pharmacy tech job, make sure it’s a job that allows you to grow beyond the pharmacy technician job description. You don’t want to have a job that’s all about job and no growth. Some of the best and most fulfilling jobs are the ones that allow us to grow with the company and share more of ourselves that what we learned in school. The good thing is that many institutions now realize that and are now working toward helping people express themselves more.
Hopefully when you land that pharmacy tech job, those days in school, cramming for certification exams and working will all be worth it. Good luck!
