Idaho State University College of Pharmacy sponsors 2010 Pharmacy Recruiting Fair

Posted July 8, 2010

The Idaho State University College of Pharmacy and the Professional Pharmacy Student Alliance (PPSA) will host the 2010 Pharmacy Recruiting Fair Oct. 21 and 22 in the ISU Earl Pond Student Union Building Ballroom.

More than 80 health care recruiters representing about 50 companies from Idaho and across the United States typically attend the fair to interview students one-on-one for potential employment.

Each year the college makes a special effort to ensure that fourth-year students performing clinical rotations in Pocatello, Boise, Coeur d’Alene and other Western sites return to campus to participate in interviews during the pharmacy recruiting fair, said Andrew Gauss, fair coordinator.

“Several of the top pharmacies in the United States send recruiters to campus each year seeking ISU graduates who are well-educated, professional pharmacy practitioners,” Gauss said.

Currently, about 60 pharmacy students serving rotations anticipate graduation in May 2011.

In addition to the 2011 graduates, first-, second- and third-year pharmacy students will be able to discuss employment and internships opportunities with recruiters.

The fair allows students to increase their knowledge of career pathways in community, hospital, research and other pharmacy career opportunities.

In addition to recruiter interviews, participating companies will display exhibits from 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 21 in the ballroom.
