I am thinking about pursuing a career in pharmacy. My plan is to work as a pharmacy technician for 5 years and then go to pharmacy school for a pharmD. I have been researching the field of pharmacy tech online and I am getting mixed feelings about it. I really just want to know; what do employers look for when they are recruiting new employees? I have a BS in psychology and retail experience but I also have very bad credit. My plan is to purchase several books and study for 3 months or so for the certification test and become certified. I want to ideally volunteer in a pharmacy but I really don't know how to go about it at this point. I really don't want to go to school for this unless it will guarantee I get a job afterward. I graduated 2 years ago with my BS and all I can get is minimum wage jobs in retail where the hours are cut from time to time. What else do I need to do to get a position as a pharmacy technician? will my bad credit make it impossible for me to get hired as pharmacy tech?
