I havenâ€™t heard from a headhunter in a long time. I get blasted with useless stuff from LinkedIn on occasion, but no laser targeted attempts. But without a doubt what Iâ€™m about to show you takes the cake.
The information below landed on my website in the comment section of this post. Read it carefully and then explain to me what part of the job described requires an IT pharmacist.
Professional Performance is currently interviewing IT Pharmacists interested in providing services at the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, Virginia.
The ideal IT Pharmacist will:
Receive, prepare, compound, and dispense prescriptions according to professional and military standards.
Oversee and maintain the various computer hardware and software systems that are integrated in the automated filing and checking systems in the pharmacy.
Obtain a complete patient drug history, monitor the patient’s response to drug therapy, counsel patientâ€™s regarding drug therapy and/or protocol, Investigate and resolve patient-related system usage problems
Ideal IT Pharmacist will possess the following Education and Experience:
Have a Bachelorâ€™s Degree in Pharmacy or Doctor of Pharmacy from a college of pharmacy accredited by the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE).
Minimum of two (2) yrs experience as a full time practicing Pharmacist in the last three (3) yrs and a MINIMUM of two (2) yrs IT Pharmacy Experience.
Current Basic Life Support Certification
I removed some of the typical fluff, i.e. need a license, but for the most part this is the entire list of job requirements and skills requested by the recruiter. Iâ€™ve redacted their name and phone number.
The description of their â€œideal IT Pharmacistâ€ reads like the requirements for a typical staff pharmacist. So does their education and experience requirements for that matter. Even the statement “…maintain the various computer hardware and software systems that are integrated in the automated filing and checking systems in the pharmacy” is weak. Monkey work at best.
This recruiter doesn’t have a clue. If youâ€™re an IT pharmacist and are looking for a job, this isnâ€™t it. Just sayinâ€™.
