How do I find a job as a pharmacy technician?

How do I find a job as a pharmacy technician? Do I need to be licensed? Do I need to take pharmacy tech traning classes at a community college so that I can be a pharmacy technician? Do you know where I can volunteer for experience or even get paid for my experience? Can someone share? Thanks.
