YOU KNOW IT’S TIME TO TRANSITION TO A BETTER JOB.

I totally get it because I was exactly where you are now.

Filling scripts at a rate that didn’t allow me to actually help people, burning me out, worried I would make a mistake and hurt someone.

When I spoke out and asked for a better system, I was bullied by my supervisor. At home, my wife was overwhelmed with the kids while I was searching job boards.

I realized this job wasn’t giving me the life I wanted, but everything else I applied for seemed like more of the same.

I realized this job wasn’t giving me the life I wanted, but everything else I applied for seemed like more of the same.

I started wondering if I should even stay in pharmacy, but didn’t want to throw away all the hard work I had put in to get here.

What I didn’t know then, was that there are so many more career opportunities for a PharmD than the typical jobs most of us spend our first years burning out on.

When I began to understand my options, it became vividly clear I was climbing the wrong hill.

Even though I had a six-figure salary, I had been focused on climbing a small hill surrounded by mountains that had EXPONENTIALLY:

    • More Satisfaction
    • More Time
    • More Income
    • More Happiness
    • More Impact

…minus the burnout and the MASSIVE COSTS associated with it.

Are you climbing the right hill?

The PharmD Negative Feedback Loop

Phase 1: 1-2 months

The Search Begins

You feel overwhelmed by the information, all the necessary tasks that come along with searching for a job.

You wonder even if the jobs you’re applying to will be any good.

Phase 2: 2-6 months

The Long Pause

After looking for a while with no success, you eventually lose the motivation to keep pushing.

You resign yourself to your current job situation. “Maybe it isn’t so bad”, you tell yourself.

Phase 3: 6+ Months

The Bad Day

One day at work, you’ll experience a bad day. A day so bad that it’ll feel like you’re at your breaking point.

Phase 1 Repeats or you accept your fate and stop looking for a new job…

We create Happy PharmDs by breaking this loop, regardless of what phase you’re in or how many cycles you’ve been through.

We help you get a job you actually LOVE.

You’re ready for a life that looks more like this…

N

You come home and make new memories with your family because you can leave work at work.

N

You’ve started a brand new hobby that you love because you come home inspired and energized.

N

You’ve created the perfect resume because you found your passions and they’re perfectly aligned with your new field of work.

N

You learn new things for fun because you feel secure in your skills at work.

N

You jump out of bed in the morning the first time your alarm goes off because you’re looking forward to the day ahead at work.

“I’M PASSIONATE AGAIN ABOUT PHARMACY”

“I went to pharmacy school because that’s what I wanted to do for a long time, and of course the cliche answer of wanting to help people, but that was the truth.

I was applying for new jobs constantly. You’d see jobs that were open and get excited, but I wasn’t hearing anything back AT ALL.

I was depressed. It was taking over my life.

I reached out because I thought I needed help with my resume, but The Happy PharmD helped with so much more.

My happiness factor shot through the roof!

It blows my mind that there are even jobs like this. I’m happy with the company, with the job, and I’m learning so much. I’m passionate again about Pharmacy.”

I understand what it’s like to put in the hours and financial investment to get your doctorate degree and end up feeling stuck in a career that isn’t working for you… but it doesn’t have to be that way.

 

I struggled going to work each day to a job that I hated until I finally got curious about what other options were available for me.

 

I’d love to show you what’s possible for you.

FROM RETAIL TO FULL-TIME PHARMA ASSOCIATE

 

“I was sending applications all over the place but the only word that comes to mind when people ask me how I felt during my initial job search is: hopeless. It was brutal.

I used what I learned from The Happy PharmD and working with a coach put me in a spot where I wouldn’t have been if I were just on job search by myself.

I ended up looking at Pharma companies and interviewed for a lower level position, and instead they offered me a full-time associate position. Now everything is on track.”

Hey, I’m Alex Barker, PharmD!

When I started my first pharmacy job…

     I thought that Pharmacy was bigger and better

     I thought I could be doing more to help people

     I thought there would be more opportunities for me

And then…

     I wanted to leave pharmacy and I felt like a failure.

I know exactly how frustrating it can be to be burned out and wanting more for yourself. And how disheartening the pharmacy job landscape can be. 

I started The Happy PharmD as a way to help other pharmacists. I’ve mastered teaching others to navigate the job market, find what inspires them, and land their dream jobs.

If you want to completely change the way you feel about getting up for work in the morning, I’ve got just the prescription for you…

What I really want for you is to be able to wake up in the morning, excited about the day ahead, which is what I’ve been lucky enough to find for myself. 

Pharmacists are a special breed, and we really thrive on helping others. The job you have now obviously isn’t fostering that very special part of you. It CAN be better. You CAN help others at work and feel GOOD about it. 

If you’re ready to stop going through the same cycle again and again, only to be disappointed with the results, then we’re here for you. Let’s do this together!

Success Stories

Here’s what our clients say about our service.

Success Stories

Here’s what our clients say about our service.

I got to a point where I was just ready to quit

I was pretty miserable. It became not worth it to me anymore so I left that job and I didn’t have a plan. I found The Happy PharmD and got that surge of motivation to do something. It was so good for getting my mind right, I needed that mindset shift.

The support of a coach who can identify with your journey, give you tools, and put you in that right mindset to make it happen…anyone can benefit from it.

Kelsa Benzing, PharmD

Retail to Oncology Specialty

Put yourself in the best possible place to get that position…

People who come to The Happy PharmD don’t have to be unhappy with their job. Maybe they want to be more involved with the organization, they want to start a side hustle, or just want to get promoted. It’s putting yourself in the best possible place to get that position.

Milena Murray, PharmD

Clinical Pharmacist to Medical Writing

I was a place in my career that I felt burnt out doing the same work for four years…

I was having problems getting traction. The biggest thing that was really helpful to me in setting me up for success was learning what I am good at, what motivates me about my work, and what I want to do then finding roles that fit that. I don’t think it was something that I would have done on my own.

Bryant Cary, PharmD

Pharmacist to Pharmacy Performance Manager

I’ve had it…

I was tired of dealing with prices, reimbursement, staffing issues, HR problems…you name it.

When I learned about the people that The Happy PharmD had helped, it seemed like the logical place to go. About a week ago, I got a position that will enable me to transition into academia: a part-time teacher at a community college teaching pharmacy technicians. I start in two weeks!

I’m thrilled to death to be able to use my education and knowledge and be able to help people the way I’ve always wanted to without all of the red tape that goes along with being in a community pharmacy.

Juli Sanchez, PharmD

Pharmacist to Academia

Gave me confidence to pursue any new challenge…

Sometimes we’ll quit reaching for a tough goal when no-one’s watching, but if you have a coach you have someone to hold you accountable and at the same time redirect you so you don’t allow yourself to fail.

Rineil Perez, PharmD
