Can doctors become pharmaceutical sales reps? Absolutely! It has been done before. I have one fellow I’m helping with in getting his resume right and he is a present case of a physician who wants to be a sales rep. In these cases, it is very easy for doctors to position themselves on paper and in person as being too clinical rather than sales oriented. Many reviewers will still get the impression that these types of candidates are better off in a medical type of job rather than in sales. So the key here is to get more sales oriented and position yourself like a potential sales rep rather than a doctor.
