Skill wise, you definitely need good communication skills and a sense of drive. There is no such thing as free time here at the hospital. One thing we hate as interns and techs is seeing someone stand around doing nothing. Again i stressed earlier that each tech is limited to main responsibilities but that doesn't mean that we can't help one another. You definitely need to have the drive to work and help others. If a pharmacist asks you to send something up then it's your job to bring it to the floor. Don't try to push that onto someone else's shoulders. You are there to work afterall and nothing else. You also need to be able to communicate with others. A lot of things are constantly changing around here so if you have questions or if you have something you need to tell others you MUST communicate thoroughly. I cannot stress how important this still is and how often it gets overlooked. You also need to be organized both with you thought process and with the way you work. We want people to be able to keep our pharmacy clean.
