One of the advantages to becoming a Pharmacist is that you have the option to work in various locations. Community Pharmacists typically work in chain drug stores or independently owned pharmacies. Clinical Pharmacists work in hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare settings. Consultant Pharmacists advise healthcare facilities or insurance providers on patient medication use or improving pharmacy services. Pharmaceutical industry pharmacists work in areas such as marketing, sales, or research and development. As a Pharmacist you may dispense prescription medications to patients and offer expertise in the safe use of prescriptions. You may also may conduct health and wellness screenings, provide immunizations, oversee the medications given to patients, and provide advice on healthy lifestyles.

Prospective pharmacists are required to have a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Chemistry, pharmacology, and medical ethics are just a few of the areas that you will study. Pharmacists must provide safe medications efficiently. To do this, they must be able to evaluate a patient’s needs and the prescriber’s orders, and have extensive knowledge of the effects and appropriate circumstances for giving out a specific medication. A few skills needed to be a successful Pharmacist are your communication skills, managerial skills,computer skills and be detail oriented.

To prepare for your interview you'll want to have you two minute elevator speech memorized. During this time you will want to talk about your education, your past and current employment and accomplishments. Practice the common interview questions such as 'tell me about yourself' and 'what are your strengths and weaknesses.' Dress professionally, bring a few copies of your resumes and references, provide good eye contact and a clear speaking voice.
