Advice for future residents: You hear everyone say it a million times but is it true... pharmacy is a small world! Don't be afraid to reach out to people or ask your current preceptors about their experiences and career path. You will meet some amazing people who can help make connections for you and/or become life-long mentors. Simply getting to know someone and grabbing a coffee to chat can go a long way.
