Go to the pharmacy and introduce yourself and dress nice and blah blah. Bring a resume/CV. Ask if they are looking for help and if the say no submit an app anyways because I worked as a tech for three years before I started pharm school and techs have a high turnover rate so they might not be hiring now but who knows next week somebody could quit or just not show up.

Congrats on the shiny new license! Definitely take the above posters advice and visit pharmacies in person with a CV/resume. Be sure to ask for the Pharmacy manager don't talk to anyone else in regards to employment. Dress to impress, Goodluck!!!

CONGRATS!!! I would go there or look online to see which places are actually hiring. Don't get discouraged if you don't get a job right away because a lot of them tend to want to hire someone with experience just cause they don't want to train people. It took me like 6 months to find a job! I would keep applying NO MATTER WHAT! Go with a resume and let them know that you have submitted an online application, so it makes it easier for them to pull you up.
