At the fair, students can interact with representatives from each organization to learn about job opportunities and make connections that will help them secure a job after graduation.

“The market for pharmacists continues to be very strong,” said Marc Sweeney, Pharm.D., dean of the school of pharmacy. “As our inaugural classe evaluates potential opportunities, they will find many options around the U.S. in a variety of practice settings. I am very excited to see the many roles our first group of Pharm.D. graduates pursue.”
