ACT Pharmacy Collaborative

ACT Match Transition to NCPA Job Center


As the demand for student pharmacists grows, ACT has partnered with NCPA to utilize their new job board for internship positions. The ACT Match Program has transitioned to the NCPA Job Center to provide pharmacies and students a sustainable outlet for posting and seeking student opportunities at community pharmacies. All community pharmacies who initially raised their hands for the ACT Match Program and any others who are looking for student support are invited to post an internship on the job board.


Pharmacies seeking interns can create a free account by selecting the “employers” tab on the home page, then setting up a login. Employers can post available internship positions for free for 30 days and include information such as whether it’s a paid internship or if telecommuting is an option.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Employers must select the internship button when asked what level the position is on the position intake form so they aren’t charged at check out.


After creating their profile, pharmacies should complete the internship tab on the home screen to be able to review internship candidates. To make your pharmacy’s position easy to find for students, please include “CPESN” in the internship title. Students can then search by key word “CPESN” and find your position even faster.
