I graduated from pharmacy school in May 2012 and had a difficult time finding a position. I had several interviews but in the end, I did not end up with a job. It wasn't until I was contacted by a recruiter in October that I had employment. However, it was only a temporary assignment that only lasted from November to February of 2013. And that began a second employment gap.
But since October 2013, I've been working at the same company (albeit a lot of it as a temporary worker), with the exception of May 2014, when I was between contract assignments with the same company. But since October of last year, I've been an actual employee with my current company.
The thing I did during that time period was complete the application to go back to school and complete a master's degree related to healthcare, but I did not actually start classes until Fall of 2013.
So I have a two gaps in my work history, one of ~6 months and another of ~8 months. And my job history has been completely with the same company.
- November 2012 to February 2013 (Company X via Agency 1)
- October 2013 to April 2014 (Company X via Agency 2)
- June 2014 to September 2014 (Company X via Agency 2)
- October 2014 to Present (Company X)
I completed my Master's recently and am exploring career options combining my two degrees, even with my current employer.
