Things to Keep in Mind for Your Resume...

Be sure to include whatever past experience you have had as a pharmacy technician.

If you have experience in more than one pharmacy setting, than you have an advantage. Employers like to see prospective employees who are well-rounded.

The more experience you have, the better, but there are always employers willing to train you if you are willing to put in the effort.

Document the responsibilities you have in your present job and each of your previous jobs over the past 7-10 years.

Include skills that you have, for example, your ability to compound IV's or your experience with pharmacy automation.

My page devoted to technician certification explains how important it is and how to go about taking the certification exam.

The exam is difficult, but the benefits of certification are well worth the challenge of studying for the exam.

Stay focused! Becoming certified is challenging. It takes time to study and review what you know. But it is definitely worth the time and energy.

More technician resources for advancing your career in pharmacy are on my technician career resources page.

Your hard work will pay off! Time spent on improving your career skills so you can get a pay raise or promoted is never wasted.
