    What do you think they are? I'm going to do a number of job interviews, and I want to make sure that I know some of them.

    Could be any types of pharmacy jobs. I'm applying for hospital jobs though.

    Robots eating the elderly people's medications for fuel. How do you even go about counseling them about it?

    you can't use tml to embed, you have to use the bbcode to embed.

    I'd say some issues are:
    -The beginning of the end is here, the first wave of babyboomers are retiring
    --This means a strained Social Security system
    --medicare and medicade will be strained to cover drug cost

    theres more, be creative.

    I think the robot factoid is the most important. I can't believe I didn't even think of that one. What are we going to do?

    Exactly my question. If it is for a pharmacist position I would definitely bring up the robot situation, it will make you look smart.

    Can someone clairify what you mean by robot factoids (cause personally that statement sounds as if you are trying to be funny). I am interviewing for Pharmacy school and will be practicing the answers to some of the same questions. Thanks
