I was inspired to become an industry pharmacist from a young age. My mother worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative for nearly 15 years and informed me that several coworkers she frequently interacted with during training and company events were pharmacists. Upon meeting these coworkers, they informed me that working in industry as a pharmacist is an excellent way to be at the forefront of cutting-edge scientific knowledge while working in a flexible corporate environment. I shadowed these professionals, who ranged from medical education specialists to medical science liaisons, during summers as an undergraduate student. I found myself enthralled about the work I saw being conducted, and felt confident that pursuing a career in industry was the best decision for me.
