What I got from your question is that, you are not being able to apply for many jobs, since they are asking for pharmacist license for many of their jobs.
But as we could see, depending upon the level of job you are applying, will determine, if you need a pharmacist license. for example, if you are going to take a franchisee of a medical store brand, you will require a license, but if you simply applying for any job that won't have to deal with the decision making procedure about selling or handing over a drug to the consumers, you won't need it.
What I gathered from various sources of information, that there are different levels of job with their own sets of requirement. A University Degree in Pharmacy will make you eligible to be in this stream of profession yes, but a license will enhance your eligibility in certain areas.
It is just the same way, we need an extra level of qualification to apply for other jobs in addition to our basic one. In every profession, this is to choose the more eligible people from the lesser ones.
