My Occupation

I would like to be a pharmacist. I’m very good at helping people.

My occupation has some difficult working conditions.

We often have to deal with not so happy customers.

We must pay close attention to what we’re doing. Ex. Counting pills

We have to meet strict deadlines on a daily basis.

We must have a high level of social contact. Meaning be friendly, and talkative. But not annoying.
