When it comes to medical sales resumes, here is a sample CV of a very effective one. It was modeled after a similar resume that was successfully used in real life by an experienced pharmaceutical sales representative who got a promotion to become a hospital specialist representative in the city with the largest medical teaching center of the country.
The first part of the sample medical sales resume for Jane Doe is reproduced below.

Consistently high achiever with multiple awards for sales performances. Experienced in organizing high quality continuing medical education programs and hospital rounds for healthcare professionals.
All of her contact information is stated at the top. Her profile statement above clearly describes her as a very accomplished pharmaceutical medical sales representative and this type of statement is ideal for individuals who are going after more senior positions within the same industry.

For those who are new to the industry and trying to get into the pharmaceutical sales field, a different tactic is recommended as profile statements would not be appropriate. The ebook "How To Get A Dream Job In Pharmaceutical Sales - Direct Inside Advice and Guidance from a Sales Manager" contains resume examples more geared for those without prior pharmaceutical sales experience.
