Alex is the Founder of The Happy PharmD. He loves anime, his family, and video games, but not in that order.
When Gina started working with us, she was a pharmacy manager at a community pharmacy that is a part of a large chain. She was unhappy and unfulfilled in her job.
“At the end of the day, I felt disappointed, drained, exhausted, and unhappy.” She knew she needed to make a change but had applied to several positions with no luck.
Out of the blue (or perhaps by extreme serendipity), she had a colleague that forwarded her an email from The Happy PharmD suggesting that Gina check out what our team has to offer.
After working with us for six months, Gina achieved her goal of receiving a hospital position with no prior experience or residency training.
“I feel like I am in the right place in my life. I’m in the right city, at the right hospital. I’m finally excited to go to work again.”
When asked if she would share her thoughts about why others should consider coaching, Gina said beyond resume guidance in school, she didn’t realize how many more aspects of navigating a career and other career options that existed that her coach helped her unveil.
For Gina, the most helpful thing about coaching was “being able to talk to someone who was knowledgeable about the things I could do to improve my career. My coach helped me get past roadblocks.”
Gina is not stopping here. She shared with me that she is dedicated on continuing her career trajectory in a more clinical role and will seek out new opportunities in her hospital to get involved in patient care.
If you really want to build the career and life that you’ve dreamed of, one where you are helping people and working in the field that you love, you need to do something different than what you’ve been doing.
