Don't Sign That Contract

Because I was one myself, I understand the excitement that many newer pharmacists experience when first entering the world of pharmacy and healthcare.

You've worked hard to achieve your goals and sacrificed financially for many years. Now that you've accomplished your goals, you're extremely motivated to pursue your dreams and take advantage of the many opportunities that are presented to you. You can't wait to get started.

But be aware. For every motivated and altruistic new pharmacist that enters the profession, there are just as many unscrupulous individuals, greedy "colleagues", or corporate minions counting on your motivation in order to exploit you.

These unscrupulous individuals understand that high intelligence is no protection from stupid behavior, and will stop at nothing to use your naivety against you. As much as they may smile, congratulate you, slap you on the back and blow smoke up your ass, they are NOT your friends. To them, you're just fresh meat on the street.

Don't be fooled by promises or dollar signs, and sign something that you may regret later on. There's a reason why they want you to sign a secrecy-agreement, an employment contract, or some other document relinquishing your rights as a condition of employment. And it's not to protect you.

However, don't just take my word for it. See what Dr. Victor DeNoble has experienced.
