Here's a tip on writing your pharmaceutical sales cover letter when applying to pharmaceutical sales jobs in an ad posting. Rather than just writing that you are a hard worker, organized, outgoing, etc., like many other applicants will likely do in a cover letter, address specific job qualifications that are stated in the job posting and give some backup to support your claim.
If a job posting states that candidates should have qualifications A, B and C, then you should also make sure that your cover letter addresses qualifications A, B as well as C.
Many people reviewing pharmaceutical sales cover letters and resumes will look for such points in order to determine whether they will even bother to look at your resume at all. Review staff may use this as a screening method especially if they have a few hundred applicants for a specific job opening.
You want to use your cover letter as a teaser so that reviewers will want to look at your resume. You don't want to have your application passed over just because you failed to address all the required qualifications of the job stated in the posting.
