Why do you want to become a pharmacist?

Pharmacy belongs to the most popular careers all around the world. Clean working environment, smart colleagues, and exceptional salary–these are the typical reasons why people decide to pursue the career in pharmacy.

In your interview, however, I would suggest you to speak about different reasons. Desire to help people, your passion for healthcare, the fact that you like the nature of the job, etc.

You should also avoid connecting your application with your studies. Saying that you apply because you have graduated from the field would indicate a must, not a desire. And that would be a bad sign for the interviewers…
