How do I become a pharmacy technician?

Many, if not all, pharmacy schools require previous work experience as a pharmacy technician in order to be considered for a spot in the entering class. However, finding a job as a pharmacy technician is extremely difficult. Only people with connections to other pharmacy technicians or pharmacists can find these jobs.

So, what is one to do to enter the profession?
