As a Pharmacist recruiter I see new grads and experienced clients to
often rush into the decision making process weighing retail v.
hospital. The advise i normally give my clients is if you want to go
retail immediately you are going to suffer later in your career. It is
a belief my most of my clients who are hospitals, long term care and
home infusion companies, believe that you as a retail pharmacist are
not practicing pharmacy and only want to leave retail because they
long hours are wearing on you. If you ever want to get into hospital
at a later date it is going to be exremely hard. Only a few of my
clients will even look at a retail resume and even less have the
infrastructure to train retail pharmacists. If you go to retail and
eventually want to get into a hospital, I would go to home infustion
it will provide with the all important IV experience that my hospital
clients are looking for. I suggest retail as last option at the end of
ones career when the flexiblity of schedule and the big bucks make it
an easy choice. Retail is not entirely a bad choice upfront the money
is way better than long term care and even hospital but the experience
you gain in hospital, long term care and home infusion will propell
you further in your career than retail.
I did Start in Hospital (way back in the mid 60's ...when I got of of
school...worked in the basement of John Hopkins for 5
years.....learned absolutely nothing...
Today you may be right about Hospitals not looking at a Resume
from a Retail Pharmacist ... I just do not know..
What I do know is that I honestly never knew of a single Pharmacist
who even wrote a resume ..nor do I know of a single Pharmacist who is
looking for work..
Just the opinion of an old Retired Pharmacist.. who has worked
Hospital (regular and military) and Retail...
