I began this year with new hopes, restructured dreams and aspirations. After a failed attempt at becoming a psychologist at a prestigious institution, I decided to try another route: becoming a pharmacy technician through an accredited school. Since I am recently married, and my husband just joined the Air Force, I decided that becoming a pharmacy technician was the most reasonable ‘career’ that I would pursue. It would leave me time to spend with my husband, as well as raise children….since at the moment, we are trying to conceive. I decided that I didn’t want a stressful job that stole me away from my family. I wanted to become a pharmacy technician.
Have you ever had braces? Had X-rays at the dentist? Then you worked with a Dental Assistant. During procedures, they work alongside dentists to handle equipment and assist with vital tasks.
At this point you pharmacy technician career will first want to check to see if they have the class style that you want. The two options will be online courses or in person classes in your area. Both options have their own set of pros and cons, but the point here is to just make sure the school has the option you want. If they do not, take them off your list.
My husband, of course, was very elated of the news. And, of course, he went to the orientation with me. That’s when I met Mr. Bolinger. Mr. Bolinger was a rebel without a cause. He was a construction man. He was a business man. He was a family man, a jokester. He was everything a teacher usually wasn’t. He was real.
Gossip and complaining is a waste of time and does no one any good. Keep moving forward and focus on the responsibilities at hand. If you have to vent, make sure it is on your own time and away from work.
In 2001 I was working in Rite Aid Pharmacy as a pharmacy technician school. I met my first stroke survivor soon after I’d started. I had never seen one (stroke survivor) before and had no idea, without asking, what was wrong with this man.
Never wait to be told what to do. Taking the initiative is all about doing what you know needs to be done. It does not hurt to take on extras, but make sure the most important work is done first.
Remember, following a few simple common-sense rules can help put your pharmacy technician resume out in front of the others. You won’t always get a second chance to make a first impression.
