March 4, 2015

As a pharmacist, you have options when it comes to where you work, and at PharmacyWeek we see several pharmacy job opportunities cross desks every day that even make us want to get up and go work at these dream destinations. Jet Setter Pharmacist highlights great job openings in even better locations, and what makes these locations and employers so unique!

LOCATION: Cleveland, Ohio

EMPLOYER: Cleveland Clinic

POSITION: Director Pharmacy Care Employee Health Plan – EHP

WwestSideMarketHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: The Greater Cleveland area is a playground waiting to be explored. From the Cedar Point amusement park with roller-coasters that seemingly almost touch the clouds, to the USA’s largest indoor water park that has the longest flumes known to man and a surfing wave pool to name just a couple of attractions at the Kalahari Resort at Sandusky.

From there, a 20-minute ride on the Jet Express, a catamaran with unbounded acceleration, transports you to Put-In Bay on South Bass Island. This place is wild with bars aplenty, play parks for children of all ages and a real feel-good factor. Or, for more gentle pursuits, remain on board for another short hop to Kelley’s Island, where the pace of life is more leisurely and great for fishing and spotting wildlife.

Back in Cleveland, the city proves food and drink is more than burgers and cola. There are plenty of micro breweries attached to local bars and the Americans are certainly getting discerning tastes. The Warehouse district comes alive after dusk with a vast array of great food on offer among restaurants that remain competitive by keeping their prices at sensible levels for tempting treats – fish lovers will feel particularly at home.

For more ideas that make a night out great, there are numerous live music venues, including the House of Blues. Its big enough to have housed the biggest names you can think of, but not too big that it guarantees a great view of the stage wherever you are in the building.

clevelandtheatreTheatre, too, plays an important role in Cleveland and you would have a job to hit town without a big name to witness on one of the many stages at Playhouse Square with the choice extending from comedy, ballet, opera and the latest Broadway hits.

Shopping is great, with modern malls and traditional stores that are a mainstay of this traditional city. Nearby are the Botanical Gardens, the Museum of Natural History and the Institute of Music as just some of the neighbors.

For the quirkier side of Cleveland, here’s a novel idea – the Smile and Ride buses. Simply smile at the driver as the bus pulls over, and you ride free!

It’s appropriate as there’s plenty to smile about in Cleveland.
