Abdul Vaajid’s Answer
Hello, Tia Indeed pharmacy is a very competitive but it depends what specific area of pharmacy you would like to work inn. Retail community chain pharmacy is very saturated in major cities but not so in rural areas. As far as clinical pharmacy positions are considered you can do an optional residence program ( 1 or 2 years post doctorate) or do a fellowship ( in specific area if you interested such as pharmacoeconomics or clinical study design or analysis) for a pharmaceutical company such as Abbott or Pfizer. The best part about pharmacy is that it is a versatile feild, you could own and run an independent pharmacy, or work as infusion pharmacist at long term care or provide prior authorization support for a PBM (prescription benefit manager).
Suggestion: I would ask you start getting a little bit experience in different field, get a job as certified pharmacy tech, work for a busy retail store or apply as a tech for hospital, gather as much experience even throughout pharmacy school so once you graduate you will have clear idea where you want to work.
