Just continuing on the last post, it is very important for physicians who are seeking medical sales positions to start presenting themselves as sales material rather than doctors. Yes, the medical knowledge is a bonus but companies train reps on whatever medical knowledge is required to do the job anyway. So it’s not a giant advantage.
It is more important to start acting, talking and writing on paper about sales and business rather than clinical topics. Start talking about sales, selling techniques, marketing strategies and even market shares of drugs. Convince resume reviewers and interviewers that in addition to being a doctor, you also have a business mind if you want to go for any medical sales postions.
