BRIGHTER JOB PROSPECTS AHEAD Despite Tough Job Competition, Rx relief® Predicts Stronger Job Market for Pharmacy Professionals

December 30, 2014

Rx relief, a leading pharmacy recruiting and placement firm, is pleased to announce that they predict a stronger job market for early career pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.


“The employment market has been inundated with graduates for the past few years, making competition for retail and hospital pharmacy positions more intense than ever,” says Carl Franklin, R. PH., Executive Vice President, Rx relief.  “Job prospects, however, are not as bleak as many early career professionals may think. Rx relief connects pharmacists with temporary, temp-to-hire and direct-hire positions in a variety of clinical settings and areas of specialization, such as informatics, home infusion, compounding and even management. Because these positions are so unique, competition for them is often not as heavy.”


How can students ensure brighter career prospects upon graduation? Franklin has a number of recommendations. “Finding your dream job takes more than a degree and license,” states Franklin. “Residencies are helpful, but they are few and far between. Job seekers also need to network, research employers, volunteer, become involved with industry associations, and connect with employers who can help them acquire the clinical experience they need.”


“At the end of the day, pharmacy careers aren’t about counting pills; they’re about patient care,” continues Franklin. “Rx relief is here to open doors for pharmacists and to help them create career paths in which they make a positive impact on patient outcomes, while earning what they deserve. As true career consultants, we provide the guidance and opportunities to ensure brighter career prospects for recent graduates.”
