As the news reminds us daily, the current job market is not what it once was. This leads some to wonder, “What can I do to ensure that I find a career that’s right for me?” Or, “How will I find job security in today’s market?” While we’d love to provide you with foolproof answers to these questions, the fact remains that the answers vary from person to person, from situation to situation.
Now, if you happen to be the type of person who is hands-on, detail-oriented and looking for a career that is in high demand, you may want to become a pharmacy technician! Why? Here are just a few reasons:
- According to the U.S. Department of Labor, between 2012 and 2020, there is a projected growth rate of employment for pharmacy technicians of 32%. What’s that mean for you? While the average rate of growth for this 10-year period is 14%, the growth rate in this specific field is over twice that, leading to more job opportunity!
- Pharmacy technicians work with pharmacists who have a vast array of knowledge regarding the medical field. By working in such an environment, the ability and opportunity to gain new knowledge and promote personal and professional growth is ongoing.
- Pharmacy technicians can work in a variety of different environments, including medical offices, hospitals, health clinics, pharmacies, and drug manufacturing companies, just to name a few! This allows you to find an environment in which you’re comfortable working.
