Dear Hiring Manager,

I’m excited to be applying for the position of Pharmacy Technician with Cloud Clearwater. As a detail-oriented and attentive person, I would love to have the opportunity to work with your company to provide excellent customer care. One of the most important qualities of any good Pharmacy Technician is the ability to work quickly and precisely. With my excellent attention to detail, I believe I’ll be a perfect fit.

During my previous position at Retail Ocean, I assisted the in-house Pharmacist with filling and distributing prescriptions. My duties included verifying insurance information for patients as well as answering billing questions and concerns. I have a Pharmacy Technician Certificate, and as part of my training program, I developed the skills necessary to help patients acquire the prescriptions they need. I also understand the importance of keeping a precise inventory, managing in-house shelves, and keeping things organized.

I also have strong leadership and customer service skills. During my time at Retail Ocean, I was responsible for training four other employees. I also was able to effectively handle customer complaints, questions, and billing disputes in a way that was meaningful and effective for everyone involved.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I’m looking forward to hearing more about the Pharmacy Technician position at Cloud Clearwater. Customer service and satisfaction is one of the most important things to me, and I know that at Cloud Clearwater, I’ll be able to help make sure each patient walks away feeling cared for.

“Dear Human Resources Director:

I am applying for a position as a pharmacy technician and I am able to work at any of your 12 metropolitan city locations. My name is Wes Bradley and I just graduated from XYZ State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry. I have been accepted to the School of Pharmacy at ABC City College where I will start classes at the end of August. I am looking for a technician job, not only for the summer, but after school starts as well. Once my classes begin I will still be able to work in the evenings which is what I would like to do if there is a job available.

Although I have never worked as a pharmacy technician, I understand that you have a training program and I am a quick study. Throughout college I worked as a waiter at an upscale seafood restaurant. I am accustomed to working in a very fast-paced environment and I understand the importance of providing superior customer service. I took some pre-pharmacy courses during my undergraduate years in college; therefore I am already familiar with pharmaceutical terminology, laws and ethics governing the industry, patient privacy laws and electronic health records.

I understand the importance of making sure that patients fully understand any side effects associated with their prescription medications as well as the proper dosage and time medications should be taken. I am familiar with professional telephone etiquette and am also an excellent time manager and multi-tasker. I possess strong communication, interpersonal and organizational skills and I am proficient on a number of different computer programs.

I hope you will consider me for a position as a pharmacy technician at one of the area ABC Pharmacy locations. Please feel free to contact me for a telephone or personal interview on my cell phone at (555)-555-5555 or via email at [email]
