The State Of Pharmacist Jobs Today

People who embark on a Pharmacy career must undertake hours of study to master their craft. As a result, they are one of the most important parts of the medical profession. Pharmacist Jobs entail understanding all the complexities of mixing formulas, reading doctor's prescriptions, and many other things connected with this very vital part of Pharmacy Jobs in today's society.

In the US and elsewhere in the world, careers in pharmacy are dwindling and not because the need has seen a decline. Many who have served in this field for years are now of retirement age. Additionally, newcomers of both genders are selecting other career paths, many opting for part-time over full-time work in the field due to changes in the system.

It is felt that one of the reasons that the interest in Pharmacy Jobs has slackened is the lack of personal contact with patients. Looking at figures and prescriptions and gathering the required medicines does not appear as exciting as meeting someone face-to-face and assisting them with their problems. Many would like to see the inclusion of other fields such as drug counseling, administration of immunizations added to job descriptions in order to have more personal contact with clients.

There is no doubt that Staffing Agencies are having and harder time filling vacant positions and it appears that the trend will continue. Due to changing demographics (46% are now female) the part-time over full-time positions are preferred. A majority of males are finding themselves in an aging group (40% of males are over 55 compared to 10% females); therefore, part-time positions allow pharmacists access to leisure activities they lacked previously.

One of the key changes is not only the position where pharmacies are now found. Many can now be located in places such as supermarkets, chair stores, and independent businesses as well as hospitals. However, even though pharmacists may be working less they are earning an average of 38% more annually.

Today's pharmacy situation has greatly changed from the home town pharmacist of years ago. They no longer know everyone who comes in and chats about local situations, or collects the money when the prescription is filled. Non-pharmacy technicians are now hired to do everything but fill the prescription which allows the pharmacist to just concentrate on their work.

Technology has also enhanced the workplace since it invaded the pharmacy area just like in other parts of civilization. New equipment allows pills to be counted or pre-prepared for dispensing. Telephones that automatically record prescription refill requests, drive-up windows manned by technicians, and many other additions have sped up the process of obtaining medications in a fast and efficient manner.

The salary for those who are employed in Pharmacist Jobs is very good and has, in fact, increased 38% annually over the past decade. A career in this field can be very profitable as well as, according to a survey, have a very high job satisfaction. This is one area of the economy where finding employment is not an issue. Many are finding a pharmacy career is a very good choice.
