Social Media Tips for Pharmacy Job Seekers

Finding any job is about connections. These days, not all connections need to be personal, and social media can help get you the interview you want.

Keep it respectable

Just because you can access hundreds of potential contacts, doesn’t mean you should spam them all or nag them. You wouldn’t do it in person and you shouldn’t do online. Likewise, you should keep your virtual presentation professional – think the internet equivalent of a job interview. Your profiles should be accurate, positive and free of controversial content.

The right tool for the job

The best online network for professional connections is Linkedin. If you are looking for a job, you should prioritize this profile by joining relevant groups and providing more information than just your resume. If you choose to use Twitter, consider creating an account just for your job search. You can also gain valuable information by following the social media accounts of prospective employers like CVS and Walgreens.

Know what you want

It seems obvious, but all your social media should make it clear that you are looking for a pharmacy technician job. Be sure to mention it frequently in posts and profiles, so that you can get the most out of each of your connections. Your contacts can’t help you find a job if they don’t know you are looking for one.
