Re: Pharmacist position
I am writing to apply for the position of Pharmacist at HealthiLife Pharmacy as recently advertised on SEEK.com.au.
As a recent Bachelor of Pharmacy graduate, I am looking forward to applying my skills in a practical setting. I am a hardworking, enthusiastic person and would be thrilled to work for your business given its exemplary reputation for progressive healthcare.
Since graduating I have undertaken a professional placement at DrugSmart Pharmacy to further enhance my patient counselling skills and gain additional dispensing experience. Drugsmart Pharmacy is a high traffic environment, requiring me to utilise my outstanding ability to prioritise and juggle multiple tasks, including customer service, technical and administrative tasks.
My day-to-day responsibilities include providing a range of patient medication advice for both prescription (S4) items, OTC (S2, S3 and S3A vitamins and complementary medicines) and extemporaneous products. I conduct all patient consultations with the utmost professionalism and confidentiality, ensuring that I carry out all tasks in accordance with Quality Care Pharmacy Standards. As a result, I have quickly become a valued member of the team and receive commendation for my attention to detail and professional work ethic.
My background in clinical pharmacy has provided a sound framework for my transition to a customer-facing role. Having encountered a diverse array of patients, I have gained excellent communication and interpersonal skills, alongside the ability to solve problems and handle challenging situations. During my various work placements, I have become proficient in using AMFAC and LOTS integrated dispensing/point of sale suites, as well as receiving training in FRED Dispense. I am also registered with The Pharmacy Board of Australia.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this application with you further, and look forward to hearing from you.
