Pharmacy #2 on LinkedIn List of Most Promising Jobs in 2017

Pharmacy #2 on LinkedIn List of Most Promising Jobs in 2017:

Recently HCC shared that according to the most recent Gallup Poll Pharmacists once again ranked at the very top of Most Trusted Professionals in regards to both ethics and honesty. Now according to a recent LinkedIn post pertaining to the Most Promising Jobs in 2017, LinkedIn revealed that it’s data has proven that the Pharmacy profession is the number two ranked most lucrative job field to be in. It was clear that the Most Promising Jobs in 2017 on the LinkedIn list were in Healthcare, Finance and High-tech industries, but a major surprise was that some jobs that paid higher salaries were far below Pharmacy on the list. Good examples were Medical Directors (median annual salary of $230,000) and Anaesthetist (median annual salary of $156,000). The median annual salary of Pharmacists was listed as $123,000. The conclusion that can be drawn is that salary alone does NOT in itself make a profession or job “promising” these days. So what exactly does?

Ranking Criteria
This is the first time that LinkedIn has revealed such findings. It was noted that the list was primarily based on a profession’s median salary, year over year increases in job openings and industry growth, plus on an individual’s potential for career advancement opportunities. Some of the actual criteria looked at included:
– Salaries across US geographical areas
– Number of job openings
– Opportunity for career advancement
– Potential for increased skill improvements
– Increased specialization in the profession
– Yearly growth of new jobs
– Education requirements to work in a particular profession
This is just a partial list of the factors taken into consideration, but the results support the fact that according to LinkedIn, Pharmacy stood out as being noted the 2nd Most Promising Profession of 2017 across the nation.

Top Pharmacist Skills In Demand
It is also interesting to note that the LinkedIn data revealed that top skills in the Pharmacy profession that were in demand included:
1. Medication and Drug Utilization Management
2. Community Pharmacist Skills (both independent and chain-store Pharmacy roles)
3. Patient Counseling and Education Experience
4. Patient Immunization Skills
5. Pharmacy Automation Experience and Experience
It was noted that this particular data was actually taken from LinkedIn members individual profiles (and then compared to the actual Pharmacy business profiles).

What This Means To Us As Pharmacists
According to Daniel Shapero at LinkedIn, “job hopping has nearly doubled in the last 20 years, and is only accelerating. Based on our research, we know that the top reasons people change jobs is to pursue a stronger career path, make more money or access more opportunities within their organization. Finding a job you love with one or more of these components can feel like a challenge.”
So if any of these reasons to explore new Pharmacy opportunities appeals to you, here are some suggestions that you may want to consider trying (note that we had published these tips in an older post, but they are worth taking a new look at!):
1. Attend a CE Class – Many of us do our CE online or from a Pharmacy publication. Consider attending a CE class and meeting some new people or spending time with old friends. The social aspect of attending may stimulate you to consider adding new skills or answer any questions about a particular job setting. If not a CE class, perhaps a business class or another area of interest may do the trick for you.
2. Attend a Conference – There are numerous national, state and local conferences always going on. Meet some new people while learning about new opportunities and skills. Many Pharmacists find that they can get both a vacation (maybe with your family also going?) and get great information by attending.
3. Network with Local Pharmacists – Find pharmacists in your area who are willing to get together once a month or quarterly. Maybe it’s as simple as a regularly scheduled get together for dinner or drinks. Find some like-minded professionals interested in learning more about the industry, and take time to listen to their advice and experiences. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn from others.
4. Read – Sometimes it can be as simple as just reading! Learn about areas of Pharmacy that may interest you or perhaps find a “self help” book to get stimulated to take some positive action. Whatever you personally find interesting, there’s a book, blog, forum or article out there for you read.
5. Talk It Out – Before making any major decisions, take the time to discuss your options with a close friend or family member. Lunch or dinner with a peer can never hurt. Perhaps choose a trusted adviser in another Pharmacy role and find out their views regarding the pros and cons regarding their job and employer. It never hurts to hear it directly “from the horses mouth”.
6. Try it out if you can – If you are perhaps considering changing from your current Pharmacy job to another, maybe look into picking up a shift in a similar setting. Considering switching from Retail Pharmacy to Hospital Pharmacy? See if you can pick up a shift in a local Hospital Pharmacy and “test drive” the job before you switch.

If you are considering a Pharmacy job change, remember that whatever setting a pharmacist is looking to work in, HCC can help you!

Pharmacy Professions and Pharmacy Careers

Pharmacy Profession and Pharmacy Careers:

As we all enjoy the Holiday Season, I was thinking that this is a great time to reflect on our chosen profession as Pharmacists and to realize what being a pharmacist and having a pharmacy job means to each of us. Pharmacy is truly a profession that all of us should be grateful to be a part of and be proud of the jobs that we do in making pharmacy an integral part of our communities. We see a lot of negative publicity lately regarding pharmacy professions, but here are some reasons that we all should reflect on when reviewing our choice of a career in Pharmacy:

– Expanding Number of Pharmacy Jobs
In a recent article in Forbes magazine, pharmacy jobs are expected to have a 14% increase by the year 2022. Pharmacists not only have tremendous job security, we all have the ability to advance in our careers.

– Career Options and Opportunities
There are such diverse career opportunities for Pharmacists today that we can all choose a pharmacy job that we find satisfying. From not only choices in retail and hospital settings, but to specialty, clinical, consulting, nuclear and compounding pharmacy jobs as examples….. pharmacists have the ability to work in an arena that best fits their area of interest.

– Salary
Although money should not always be our primary goal in a job, pharmacy is a well paid profession. Again, according to Forbes magazine, the average pharmacist salary exceeds $110,000. There are few degrees one can obtain that can match this salary for someone just graduating with a degree from college.

– Work Schedule Flexibility
In addition to the diversity of career options mentioned above, pharmacists have the ability to choose just about any work schedule that suits their life style. Pharmacists in both retail and hospital settings are in demand “around the clock” and pharmacy is one of the few professions that allows us to choose our work schedule to accommodate our personal needs and life styles.

– A Profession That Is Trusted and Respected
Pharmacy consistently makes the top of all “Most Trusted Professions” lists. This is a fact that all of us as pharmacists should be extremely proud of! The public views pharmacists as well educated professionals……. and we are.

– A Profession That Helps
We truly are blessed as pharmacists to be involved in a profession that helps others on a daily basis. The basis of being a pharmacist is that we look out for the public’s’ welfare on a daily basis, no matter what setting we practice in. This is huge responsibility, but the payoff is that we can all feel really good about the impact we make on helping others stay healthy and happy in their lives.

The only person who really determines whether you have a great job is you. You determine what kind of career, life, and day you will have. Keep in mind that Healthcare Pharmacy Staffing has been known as a leader in helping pharmacists find the right job since 1989. For over 27 year now, HCC has been helping outstanding individuals connect with great companies to find satisfaction in their careers while being vital members of their communities.

Pharmacist Salary and Wage Review

Pharmacist Salary and Wage Review:

Here at HCC we see both sides of the common wage and salary issues facing the Pharmacy profession today. As in any other profession and vocation, an individual wants to be paid as much as possible for what they do, yet employers need to control salaries in an attempt to maximize return on investment and profits. We sometimes find that attempting to put an hourly wage number on “what a Pharmacist’s hourly worth is” is as complicated at the chemistry classes we all had to take and study so hard to pass. In studying the latest wage releases from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2014, we once again find that variables such as geography, population density, type of Pharmacy job, years of experience, etc. make the task of salary comparison an almost impossible job to complete.

There are some interesting statistics that do stand out (although as stated above, the relevancy of such statistics is questionable).

The employment and need for Pharmacists is still on the rise. Last year saw an increase of a little under 1% in the number of jobs available and Pharmacists employed nationwide. The Bureau rated Pharmacy as one of the top jobs to work in and projected that this rise in employment and need will continue to rise for the next several years.

The mean hourly wage for a Pharmacist across the nation rose marginally to around $57 per hour. This was an increase of a mere 0.2% and it must be noted that the hourly wage ranged anywhere from $43/hour to $72/hour depending as noted above on too many variables to draw conclusions about. One other statistic that proved interesting enough to note was that women now comprise over 60% of all practicing pharmacists in the United States. Interestingly, it was also noted that while accounting for over half of the Pharmacist workforce, women still face the challenge that male pharmacists “hold a disproportionate number of senior leadership levels” in our profession.

We think that everyone would agree on the importance of salary in determining where an individual chooses to work and what competency level an employer can expect. Yet studies prove that salary is not always the number one determining factor in the decision of where a Pharmacist chooses to work. If you are a Pharmacist choosing where to find employment and what you should be paid, HCC can help. If you are an employer looking for the right candidate and trying to determine what salary to offer, once again HCC can help.
