“The career fair is not only a great place to find employment, but it’s a great way to network with professionals from all parts of pharmacy including community pharmacy, health-system pharmacy, industry, and more. I not only secured a job, but I also expanded my network and found mentors to guide me as I continue my journey through pharmacy school and beyond.”


–Lee Roy A. Esposo, Class of 2021
