My temp contract has been extended. I’m relieved to be able to pay the bills, but after giving 70-80 shots a day, I literally dream about giving vaccines almost every night! Struggling to keep positive about finding a new permanent job - I was laid off at the end of April, have applied to over 60 jobs, had 6 interviews, and no offers. I can’t go back to chain retail - it damn near broke me in my 20’s, and it’s much worse now.

recommend looking into IT or mtm roles in insurance?

I’ve applied to several MTM positions, and not even made it to an interview. I haven’t applied to even more because they require 2-3 years experience.

What state are you in? I know some pharmacists doing work for Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson - basically post vaccine adverse event follow up.

I’m in New York, but hours away from the city. Fortunately my temp contract has been extended, but I’m pretty discouraged.

Well the temp contract was ended early - appointments dropped like a stone in early January. To add to the insult, I just got rejected for a retail position. I’m so discouraged and pretty anxious, too.

Hang in there! If you are open to moving states, there are more pharmacist jobs in places like Louisiana(only two Rx schools)…I know getting licensed is a hurdle, but it is one that you can work towards if you are open to moving. Another option is picking up a job that is healthcare-related in exchange for a great referral as you continue your search.

Have you looked into being an mtm pharmacist at Aspen Rx

I recommend changing your CV each time to include key words that appear on the job description and also gear your Cover Letter to include experience and characteristics that make you the ideal candidate. That way the HR software will choose your CV to bring to recruiter's attention and the Cover Letter will give you more consideration and/or seriousness for the role.

I recently had an in-house interview for a large company where the screening interviewer communicated the salary range and told me that I had to let him know on the spot if the range was not high enough. The amount was lower than I initially expected based on my research into the role and company so I was a little surprised. What is the best response to this question bearing in mind that I would like to make it to the next round while negotiating a higher salary?

Hi everyone. I'm a CPA (not relevant, but I want to mention it anyways) who wants to humble brag about how I'm a rich millionaire and know more than you (I don't though). Here's my financial journey that makes me qualified to speak on this:

1. Inherit 200k
2. Have your relative match your IRA contributions
3. Be in a rich family and not have to go into debt for school
4. Max retirement accounts and invest everything in index funds

Please DM and make me feel important.
