    As one can see from her work experience above, Jane is a very accomplished pharmaceutical healthcare sales representative with numerous successes with two different pharmaceutical companies. Her prior sales job before pharmaceuticals already showed that she had big potential in sales.

    In her present position, she is already doing some activities that hospital specialist representatives would be doing. An example would be developing advocate speakers. With her exposure to a few different medical specialties, this resume would help position Jane well for a more senior sales role either within her present company or with another one.

    As mentioned in part 1 of this article, this resume would be appropriate for those who are after promotions within the same industry. For those who have never been in pharmaceutical healthcare sales, a different focus would be required in a resume and this is fully covered in the book "How To Get A Dream Job In Pharmaceutical Sales - Direct Inside Advice and Guidance from a Sales Manager".

    The next section of Jane's resume outlines her education and other skills which is covered in part 3 of this article.
