I got an interview at Kmart`s Pharmacy in Memphis for Friday for a position as a pharmacy technician at one of their locations. YAY! It was very much coincidental that I got it cuz I emailed my resume to every chain pharmacy I could find around here on the Yellow Pages, and someone actually responded. So if you`re looking for a job and you really, really want it, that`s the route you should take I guess. Just send off a resume show what you`ve done, doesn`t matter experience or no experience for whatever job you applied for, but just to show that you have had your schooling and you`ve worked before. And also, an outstanding cover letter because that shows your character and personality. What you say and how you say it counts more, I think. In my resume I just listed my schooling and my previous work experiences, which were mainly in the restaurant industry. I had no pharmacy experience at all, but I stressed in my cover letter that I`m a professional when it comes to customer service (true) and that I am willing to learn whatever it takes, not to mention that I`m an extremely fast and efficient learner (very true). Well anyways, that`s a tip for ya if you need it.
