I did this a few years back. Just apply apply apply… worse they can say is “no”.
Also, be willing to relocate. Sometimes the smaller more rural locations have a hard time attracting applicants so they are more willing to train on the job.

Take a PRN role and/or be willing to work 2nd and 3rd shift.

Especially in combo with getting a referral from an employee that works at the hospital in which you desire to work

go to RxProStaff.com and they have an in person IV certification and a 5 day hospital crash course you can take and put on your resume

Sometimes it is by taking a less desirable role such as Overnights and then working from there. I know a few people who were successful in transitioning this way

I’d love to know! I can’t even get an interview with connections, and I do have IV experience.

It doesn’t help that in my area the large hospital chain now requires a PharmD, so F you to all of us in our 40’s looking to change practice settings. I have 20 years of LTC experience and just got rejected for a per diem at their rehab hospital without even an interview.

I would go back and get your pharmd if that’s the case. I did a residency late 40s - it has helped me and is another option. Having said that, when I apply for something different, the HR algorithms still stop me too and I personally see age as a factor I have to overcome with extra qualifications.

Take a per diem at a local community hospital. Go to local pharmacy association meet ups and network. Most times you get in by who you know.

Would it be unprofessional to ask if it would be okay to try to schedule the interview for Fri since I have yet to hear back today?

Ok fishes. I see a lot of recruiters posting about pivoting into HR. I’m in a situation about 90 degrees away from that.

I’ve been on hiring committees for RFPs and done reference checks before but nothing else. Do I attempt to move into recruiting or just look for opportunities to build this skill set where I am?

Is it normal to feel like my project managers are super pushy? I understand we have deadlines, but lately I have been feeling very rushed. The workload and meeting amount has been getting crazy. Today I had 12 meetings, then a route comes to me with copy change requests and my project manager checks in with me 45 minutes after. I can’t sit in a meeting then come up with copy lines 45 minutes later. I guess I’m a slow worker but I’m still learning. Is this common?
