Pharmacy Recruitment and Pharmacist Permanent Placement:
Pharmacy owners, directors and managers are all faced with the same dilemma – How do we hire the right Pharmacist for the job? As everyone knows, it is more than simply finding a “warm body” to fill the position. It requires the right skill sets, qualifications, licensing requirements and experience to fill the pharmacist position perfectly. From the pharmacist’s perspective, one has to include salary, benefits, geography, shift hours and company culture into the decision making process. Most employers find the process tedious and painful, even those with full time HR departments. For most pharmacy owners, directors and managers the hiring of a pharmacist to fill an opening is a reactive process that must take precedence over their daily job tasks. This leads to hiring mistakes that cost their business both time and money.
The Problem –
The problem in hiring pharmacists is twofold. The first centers on skill and timing. The majority of pharmacy owners, directors and managers admit that hiring is not their strong point. Their success is in running and managing the pharmacy as a business. Finding, interviewing and hiring a new pharmacist is a time consuming endeavor that requires the skill and time most employers simply don’t have.
The second challenge is the competitive nature of the pharmacist job market. Currently there are simply more jobs than pharmacists. A search on the largest job site Indeed shows 22,817 positions available today. Although this will perhaps change by 2020 due to the projected increase in the number of pharmacy graduates (according to a recent article in Medscape), currently the reality is that open positions far outdistances the number of potential candidates.
