Consider your options carefully. It is likely that you are expecting top grades in your Leaving Certificate if you are considering pharmacy as a career so there will be plenty of doors open to you. Make sure you do plenty of work experience in different areas of pharmacy and if it is healthcare you are interested in then consider getting some work experience in medicine etc. I know quite a few people who have completed a pharmacy degree only to realise they actually want to do medicine!

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

It urged people seeking employment to contact members of Nursing Home Ireland in their locality to see what opportunities were available. It said that details of jobs to be created in the sector had emerged from a survey of more than 400 private and voluntary nursing homes which was undertaken last month.

Nursing Homes Ireland said the job creation plans reflected increased demand for long-term residential care and comes during a period of severe economic pressure for private and voluntary nursing home providers.
