Finding Your Dream Job
After completing a doctoral degree or postdoctoral research, most pharmaceutical scientists have high hopes of finding that dream job. Henry North, who recently completed a two-year postdoctoral research fellowship at Howard University, found his dream job as an assistant professor at Harding University’s College of Pharmacy.

North spent about a year searching for a job, focusing on academia. When he turned to the AAPS Career Center job postings, “I was surprised to see the posting for Harding University during my first visit to the AAPS Career Center site.”

To read more on how Henry prepared for his successful job search, please refer to our new Career Success section of the AAPS Career Center.

By Mel Kleiman
