I was asked yesterday whether teachers would make good medical sales representatives or not. Well, the answer is that it just depends because I don’t think that we can generalize whether teachers would be a good fit for medical sales. We would have to look at the individual.
We can assume that most teachers will have decent communications skills which helps. However, in addition to communications skills, one must have the aptitude for a sales job and not all people with good communications skills, teachers included, can sell.
I will probably write a new article on this topic in the near future. Meanwhile, more information is available for aspiring medical sales representatives.
