Not a pharmacy technician. It is not a particularly challenging job, as it doesn't require any sort of specialized education, but it is a good way to get exposure to the pharmaceuticals industry.

Clinical Advisor (Pharmacist)
I've been a pharmacy technician. I think the most difficult aspect of the job is time management and multi-tasking. As a technician, you have to be comfortable with working on several tasks at the same time (e.g., answering a phone call, acknowledging a in-store customer, while refilling a medication electronically). Pharmacists heavily rely on their technicians and are truly the backbone of the retail pharmacy.
