I was just wondering if it was difficult to get a pharmacist position in a hospital setting or even a retail setting in southern California? During the last 6 months, I've been interviewing for residency programs and looking at different job opportunities but to no avail in SoCal. The reason why I'm so concerned is because my fiance lives in the greater Los Angeles area and I'm finding my job search so difficult. We've been having a long distance relationship for over a year and plan to marry in 2008. It would make more sense for me to move to CA to find a job rather than him resigning from his job to move to the east coast where I am. Maybe this is so hard because I'm not intern or pharmacist registered in California? Or I'm just not from the area. I heard rumors that CA board of pharmacy is also not too fond of out-of-state pharmacists coming in to CA since they want to limit the number of pharmacists in the state. Hence they have their own law exam. It really seems that obtaining a pharmacist position in Cali entails either graduating from a california pharmacy school or if you have connections. It's rather depressing. It would be really helpful if someone could offer me some insight on the job market in California and if they knew of any positions available. Thanks!
