Imagine this: you're a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed pharmacy graduate, degree freshly signed, eager to conquer the world. Armed with knowledge and passion, you land your first "real" pharmacy job. But then, reality bites. Maybe the workload is crushing, the pay doesn't reflect your value, or work-life balance feels like a mythical creature. What do you do? How do you, a fresh face in this vast professional landscape, navigate these tricky conversations with your employer?

Enter Heidi Dariz, General Manager of Raven's Recruitment, and her workshop at the recent NAPSA Congress 2024, hosted by The Pharmacy Guild of Australia. "Know Your Worth - Handling tricky conversations with your employer" drew a packed house, buzzing with student energy. As Dariz put it, "with tomorrow's Pharmacists, the future of pharmacy shines brightly!"

But let's face it, those future stars deserve to shine not just in potential, but in reality. Dariz's workshop tackled the nitty-gritty of those "tricky conversations."
