Pharmaceutical Sales Representatives
Networking with pharmaceutical sales representatives in medical sales jobs is a great idea if you are interested in this field but it is highly recommended that you do some solid research into the industry before hand. This way, you can have an intelligent conversation with drug representatives and ask them thoughtful questions. Otherwise, you would be wasting their time since they are busy people.
Spotting people in medical sales jobs is pretty easy if you are at your doctor’s office, a pharmacy or even hospital. Look for well dressed individuals who are carrying large briefcases, similar to those that airline pilots carry. An example of such a briefcase or detail bag as sometimes they are known in the industry of pharmaceutical sales reps, is shown in the short video below.
