It is an exciting time to pursue a career in pharmacy and students have many career options, including working in a community pharmacy, hospital, university, government agency, pharmaceutical research company, nursing home, hospice and home care.
Begin thinking about your career path as soon as you start the program. Talk with your advisor and others about how to best prepare to make yourself competitive.
In addition, all students may benefit from meeting with a Dean's Student Ambassador Peer Mentor. Visitors and current students are encouraged to stop by during drop-in hours to meet with a volunteer.
Most jobs are found by making connections with professionals and alumni. We strongly encourage students to network at events, through our alumni mentoring program, through relevant online networking websites, and getting involved in student organizations and activities.
Bring your CV to your advisor for help. Take advantage of professional staff and resources at UB's Career Services who can assist with practice interviews, resume critiquing, job searching assistance and more. There are also outside resources to help you prepare.
Research job opportunities and see what employers are looking for.
The secret to student satisfaction and persistence as well as future success is getting involved, early and often! Students should be networking and demonstrating their involvement outside the classroom.
