All of you guys considering going into pharmacy I sincerely want to warn you of the job outlook. I completed a PGY2 pharmacy residency last year and then applied for every pharmacy position I could find in the lower 48 states for 12 months. Not one hospital or retail pharmacy has contacted me for an interview. I have a bachelor of science undergrad degree with a 3.7 GPA. My pharmacy school GPA was 4.0. I was a member of two Greek clubs while in pharmacy school. I had two years of paid pharmacy tech experience before pharmacy school, and three years of paid retail pharmacy student intern experience. I also have a PGY2 residency and that is no insurance that you will get a job. It may have been many years ago, but that is not true any more. I have networked extensively and still no luck. I also know people that recently graduated class of 2018 and still have not managed to attain any kind of job in pharmacy. One of my hospital contacts informed me off the record that the few entry level pharmacy positions (usually per diem) are often only given to candidates that are friends or even family of other pharmacy employees. People vouching for others may be required. I suppose the same may be true among retail jobs. If you have 200 applicants for any retail pharmacist job, they can be as demanding as they want. Pharmacy is no longer a reasonable career path. Run away as fast as you can.
