The reason I ask is because I used to be pre-pharm and worked as a tech 10 years ago. Many of my pharmacists convinced me successfully that the profession was headed for disaster and to consider something else. The only optimistic ones were old timers who are were close to retirement. This was in 09. and the market was saturated then. I can imagine it's only worse now. I am glad i took their advice as I make the same amount of money in a less stressful environment as a software engineer. So I ask the question have you actually worked as a tech and talked to actual pharmacists about the profession?
