Our U.S. population is aging as well as living longer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, average life expectancy is more than 77 years of age. With those factors comes the increasing use of medication — translating into job opportunities for skilled pharmacy technicians.
Career prospects are especially good for technicians with formal education and training, like graduates of Texas State Technical College.
