In this tough economy, pharmacists are affected by the increased competition for pharmacy jobs. Those who used to have many job offers and pharmacy recruiters pursuing them are now frustrated by competing with 10, 40, 100+ applicants for one position, according to Chen Yen, PharmD, CEO of Pharmacist Job Connection. Many pharmacists, from new graduates to seasoned ones, now struggle with sending resume after resume and not receiving interviews as they would have a year or two ago. One pharmacist, Jason from Tampa, FL, who has been practicing for 18 years, describes his search for a job, "I have not seen the pharmacy job market like this during my career. I have been looking for three months now and am not hearing back from a lot of places I'm applying at."
Chen Yen, PharmD, “Get the Job” Expert recognizes the significant change in the job market and the need for pharmacists to be trained on how to market themselves. "Many pharmacists complain that they are qualified for the positions they're applying for, but not hearing from potential employers. It is no longer about how qualified you are, but how well you market yourself," says Chen. A skill not typically taught in pharmacy school curriculum becomes an important one to have in order to be successful with job hunting.
Chen announces the launch of a new teleseminar program Oct 7, teaching pharmacists the secret to getting noticed for interviews. She says a main reason for getting overlooked is not passing the 10-second resume test. The program shows pharmacists how to beat out their competition and get their resume to the top of the pile.
“If a hiring manager looks at your resume and decides it is not worthy to look further, your resume will be tossed. It is happening frequently in this tough job market," Chen Yen, PharmD says. "But there’s no reason why you should get passed over, when you are qualified for a position. I can teach you how to write a kick ass resume that stops you from getting tossed." Chen believes that not having this skill has cost pharmacists jobs. She will be teaching her secrets to those who want to learn, so they can shortcut other pharmacists' mistakes.
