I've been thinking and researching on what makes a competitive candidate for residency and was wondering what tips would you give to incoming students? I haven't exactly decided on a specialty yet or thought too much about my preferences, but I feel like one should prepare as early as possible so they have the best chance to get matched. Did most of you work during all four years of pharmacy school such as being a technician? Was this part-time or full-time? Or did you intern instead for the most part? How did you juggle this with extracurriculars and the curriculum? Do you recommend incoming students jump into an intern position or work as a tech immediately during the first year or mid-year in after they get a feel for how to study in the curriculum?
