SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I live in norther CA and decided to apply out of state for pharmacy schools since I didn't think my application was competitive enough for many CA schools and sure enough it wasn't. However I have been accepted to Albany College of Pharmacy and was planning on going there until I started researching the job outlook and from what I've gathered up California is becoming over-saturated with pharmacist and I hear it's only going to get worse. My question is how hard is it to find a job currently in Northern California and how hard do you think it will be to find a job 4 years from now? Since I would be going to school on the east coast, once I finish I would plan to come back to CA and be competing with UOP, UCSF, Touro and Northstate graduates for jobs, students who already have connections through internships and IPPEs. I have come to conclusion that going out of state for school and planning on coming back to CA may not be the best choice thus my future in pharmacy is up the air right now. any advice would be wonderful, statistics would be great too. I would be interested in the unemployment rate for current Pharm D graduates in CA.
