This happened to me outside of the pharmacy world, but it's worth repeating:In my experience - a waste of time.
Got to go press the flesh. Make real life connections with people that are influential.
The problem is when you start getting the run-around. You call the pharmacy department at the hospital, they tell you to call HR. You call HR, they tell you to call the director of pharmacy. You call the director, he says to call HR, then they tell you there are no openings.I will second that indeed.com searches are a waste of time.
Rx Career Center is a good website for searching, but do NOT apply for a posting directly through the website, or you will never hear anything. Some of them have links to the official posting, but not all of them.
My suggestion: Rx Career Center is a good tool to find jobs, but make sure you find as direct of contact information as possible.
This is what I did, too. Also, depending on the job/specialty that you're looking for, you may want to check out the career section of organizations like ACCP, SCCM, HOPA, etc.I found the posting for my current position on Indeed.com. The trick with this is to use it as a screen for jobs. Some listings list the actual hospital...I used that to find who was hiring and then applied directly on the hospital's website.
Ya, the recruiter that came to my school said there were openings in certain areas around Dallas.Want to work for cvs in bfe texas, sparda? If so, I can give you a dudes email...he was desperate like a year ago. Tyler, tx...2 hours outta dallas. They prolly think you're a terrorist, though.
No way in hell I'd let you within 300 miles of my store...sorry. Old Timer would kick me in the groin.
I visited Dallas a couple of weeks ago. It was okay, but I didn't like how stretched out the area is. A car is a must in Dallas. I have the same issue with Los Angeles.Tyler and Longview aren't bad. Its a part of Texas Pineywoods region with rolling hills. Minority population is fairly high with Hispanic farm workers. And of course good ole home bred Texas cowgirls in boots and short shorts.
And quick 2 hour drive to DFW.
