Posted Friday, Dec 20, 2013 by Allen B. Ury
Visit any retail pharmacy and you’ll probably find one or more pharmacy technicians working behind the counter. At hospitals, clinics and online pharmacies, the number of pharmacy techs is often even greater.
Pharmacy technicians and pharmacy assistants provide a valuable service. Working under the direction of licensed pharmacists, they perform the day-to-day work of taking prescriptions, filling orders, preparing labels and interacting face-to-face with customers. It’s often demanding work, but for someone without a bachelor’s degree, it can be a dependable and well-paying career.
