Hey guys, what's up? Well, something VERY interesting has come up, and after some consideration, I've decided that I'm going to go get a certification as a Pharmacy Technician. Now I'm not talking about a retail store pharmacy tech, but as a hospital pharmacy tech. Now why did I make this decision? To make a long story short, I really need to get out of Walmart and find a job that makes a decent payroll.
Here's the real kicker; it took me two years to make this hard decision, but I think this is a decision that I'm going to like. I really need to get out of retail and into a more professional field. Making $10.50 isn't cutting it. Of course, I'm well aware that I'm going to have to do a lot of studying, but I think it'll be worthwhile.
In another twist, the pharmacy people that I'm talking to at Walmart have to take the exact same test I'm going to take next year (I would make it for November, but I don't think I'll be ready by then). If they fail, they can't be pharmacy techs anymore (and yes, it'd be ideal to take the ExCPT before applying for the job).
To sum everything up, this was a decision that I made and I'm going to go forward with. Of course, I'll study ahead of time so that I can be prepared for the exam next year.
