Columbus Pharmacist Jobs Overview

Pharmacist jobs keep the healthcare cycle going by safely providing prescriptions to the population. But the role of pharmacists has evolved into something bigger—a community-oriented wellness vocation, encompassing everything from delivering vaccines and offering all-inclusive medication management to recommending healthy lifestyle tips. Community accessibility has become the pharmacist's hallmark: According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, close to nine in 10 Americans live within five miles of a pharmacy.

If you have a keen interest in science, the ability to effectively multitask, and a passion for healthcare, then a pharmacist job may be for you. Some roles in the pharmacology field involve less patient and community interaction, but generally, your duties will include preparing and dispensing medications judiciously, monitoring updates or changes in drug therapies, and advising patients about how to take medicines. Besides supervising what medications are given to patients, pharmacists are becoming more ingrained within the patient-care fabric, performing tasks that make better use of their full capabilities, such as coordinating with doctors on antibiotic selection and blood-sugar or cholesterol testing.

About Working in Columbus, Ohio

Columbus is the six-degrees-of-separation state. Or, make that 600 miles. Nearly half the residents of the U.S. live within a 600-mile radius of Columbus. A little closer to home, some famous "Columbusites" include Food Network star Guy Fieri, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, golfer Jack Nicklaus, and authors R.L. Stine and James Thurber. But the personality with one of the best Columbus jobs has to be Brutus, the mascot of The Ohio State Buckeyes. And, yes, the university is the only one in the U.S. that has the word "The" in its official name. It also has the only football team that plays in a shoe—a horseshoe-shaped stadium, that is.

Columbus is an affordable place to live, with a lower-than-average cost of living. You can find Columbus jobs in unique neighborhoods like German Village, which has brick roads and charming, restored houses from the mid-1800s. You can also check out Short North, an arts district with galleries and boutiques, and Easton, an entertainment and retail mecca with more than 300 shops and restaurants. Just outside of Columbus, you can find jobs in popular suburbs that include Dublin, Grove City, and Westerville.

Update Your Columbus Pharmacist Resume

Your pharmacist resume should highlight any relevant research you may have already conducted and specialty areas you'd like to underline (for instance, critical-care pharmaceuticals). On top of that, you should showcase your communication skills (since pharmacists need to interact with everyone from doctors and nurses to technicians and patients) and a flair for counseling (to ensure medicines are correctly administered).
