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.

Hi fishes,

I got a offer from a startup for senior devops engineer.

Before interviews I mentioned my expectation as 30LPA as base salary + other things. After all rounds of interviews they are now offering me 24LPA + 4 bonus(they said it's fixed) + 2 signing bonus. HR is saying they can't go above this amount. YOE: 4 years Current CTC: 18lpa

Is it worth accepting given the fact that initial expectation had set for 30lpa as base and the recruiting HR accepted that.
