Position Overview

Pharmacy interns are hired on paid and unpaid basis in order to get hands-on training on the job. They assist pharmacists in carrying out many tasks such as filling prescriptions and maintain drug inventory levels. It is important for pharmacy interns to possess active pharmacy intern licenses and most pharmacies prefer candidates who have immunization certifications. They serve customers by providing drug information and education to them.

Pharmacies choose certified individuals who possess great attention to detail with deep understanding of medical and pharmaceutical terms. So it is important to highlight this information when writing a resume.
