If you ever applied for a pharm sales job and you get a telephone call requesting for an interview on the spot, i.e., a phone interview, it is basically a screening device used by pharmaceutical companies to help narrow down the number of candidates to a short list. This short list will be the names of people they will select to interview face to face for pharm sales jobs.
The phone interview is therefore something that all pharm sales candidates should be ready for at anytime and one must not be caught off guard since it may be the only opportunity to advance further in the hiring process with a company.
Clint Cora’s book and audio program “How To Get A Dream Job In Pharmaceutical Sales – Direct Inside Advice and Guidance from a Sales Manager” includes strategies on how to prepare for and conduct such phone interviews for pharm sales positions. You definitely don’t want to be left off the short list due to an unimpressive phone interview that will stop your chances for that pharm sales job.
